Abstract:

The Human Reliability Prediction System Program was initiated by the Advanced Development Objective, 43-13X. The objective of this program was to develop a technology for predicting and demonstrating the system effectiveness parameters of combined man-machine systems. Specific parameters, such as system mission reliability and availability, and design oriented measures, such as human and equipment mean time between failure MTBF and mean time to repair MTTR, were considered. Before this program, no tools existed for measuring the impact of human reliability on system performance, and there was no effective procedure for predicting human reliability in a weapons systems environment.
