This reportdocuments observations on the application of Human Factors Engineering in the System Requirements Phase of the Artillery Regimental Data System Advanced Development Model ARDSADM. A Workshop and a course on Human Factors Engineering helped the ARDSADM team to focus on function and task analysis and function allocation. Scenarios of the future tasks of the artillery served an important role in discussions between engineers and users. The problem of feeding the system engineering activities with results of the human factors engineering was identified. Users were well represented, but user involvement should be broadened in following phases. Recommendations are given for future projects.
