The HFEICADD system is a computer aided design tool to support the collaborative review of human factors issues in the design of naval vessels in Canada. This research and design project has resulted in the integration of a series of custom designed and off the shelf software products that facilitate the sharing of design criteria and review decisions over the life cycle of a vessel. This software suite, now in the final phases of development, has the potential to be used in any collaborative design environment to ensure that task data, design review data, and design decisions are captured and utilized by all project personnel.
