Abstract:

This document compares human factors engineering related problems identified in the U.S. Army Operational Test and Evaluation Agency MLRS operational Test III with relevant criteria statements from MIL-HDBK-759A and MIL-STD-1472C. These criteria were reviewed to determine if they provided adequate guidance for making informed design judgements. Areas where existing criteria are inadequate or nonexistent were identified and new complete criteria developed. The new criteria are presented in a format designed to facilitate their use in the design of future similar systems.
