Abstract:

Human factors engineering HFE design problems reported in the FIST- V Operational Test II were compared with criteria in MIL-STD-1472C and MIL-HDBK- 759A to determine criteria adequacy. Where problems occurred and the related current criteria were adequate, it is recommended that greater emphasis be given these criteria in future programs. New criteria are proposed for inadequate or missing criteria. HFE problems were distributed across 27 different equipment components. Current criteria were judged adequate for 25 features and inadequate for 2. Thus, adequate guidance was available in the current FIST-V partly due to design constraints inherent in the vehicles since the FIST-V is a modification of the M901 Improved TOW Vehicle.
