Abstract:

Recent emphasis by the Department of Defense on maintainability and supportability in weapon system design dictates developing a computerized, bio-mechanical maintenance technician model that interfaces with computer aided design CAD systems used by the aerospace industry. In order to determine the functional requirements of this model, 15 maintenance officers and 15 human factors engineers were consulted using a structured, purposive interview schedule with sampling based on availability and convenience. Using the statistical modes and means of the responses, the general maintenance tasks, the body positions for these tasks, and the human factors assessment diagnostics required for simulating a line maintenance technician were prioritized. Also, the study determined what operational clothing requirements are necessary for simulation. Author
