The objective of the report is to present a new way for handling socio-technical problems, termed dynamic interfacing, using a new criterion, humanness-in-living HIL for evaluation and decision making. In dynamic interfacing, separate forecasts are made for those areas of the problem or project for which hard data are available, the techno-GNP-economics area, and for those areas for which only soft data are available, the socio-social economics area. The two sets of forecasts are compared for match-mismatch and evaluated for their effects on humanness-in-living. The method ensures that the technical, hard economic, social economic, human, social, and organizational contexts of a problem are simultaneously, and not sequentially, considered in the evolution of its solution.
