Abstract:

Although the improvement of equipment systems for human operation and maintenance has been stressed for many years, the actual measurement and specification of human performance reliability in concrete terms has been largely ignored. A set of computer simulation models, which assess the human performance reliability of a system while system is in the early design state, was previously developed. The results of trial application of these simulation models to an actual system which is under development are presented. Additionally, a set of guidelines is presented which can form the basis for a human performance reliability demonstration in future Navy systems.
