Abstract:

The five human resource technologies are defined as maintenance manpower modeling MMM, instructional system development ISD, job guide development JGD, system ownership costing SOC, and human resources in design trade-offs HRDT. The interrelationships among the five human resource technologies are identified and a methodology to apply them throughout weapon system acquisition is developed. The methodology, the coordinated human resource technology CHRT, when applied, quantifies the reliability, maintainability, manpower, training, and job guide documentation requirements for a weapon system and allows these factors to influence design, maintenance, operations, and support concepts early in acquisition. CHRT also provides a means to estimate ownership cost.
