Abstract:

The Navys weapon systems are often designed with inadequate attention being paid to human factors considerations, with consequent reduction in system performance. To ensure that behavioral inputs are made to the weapon system acquisition process, they must be made to the various reviews conducted by the Defense System Acquisition Review Council DSARC. This report describes the behavioral inputs required and the DSARC phases to which they are relevant. It describes the documents into which inputs must be inserted, the DSARC behavioral questions that should be asked, and the behavioral techniques that should be asked, and the behavioral techniques that should be implemented.
