Design engineers are required to implement human factors provisions specified in various guidance documents. However, practical procedures have not been available in the past to assist performance of this important function. This report provides a concise, user-friendly checklist to support review of human factors and logistics support provisions throughout the development cycle. In addition to operability provisions for displays and controls, the checklist includes coverage of operatorcomputer interface requirements. Maintainability issues include consideration of test equipment and maintenance aids in addition to equipment packaging provisions. Personnel procedures and workloads are addressed. The adequacy of workspace layouts, environment, and safety provisions is covered. Technical documentation of operation, maintenance, and computer programming procedures is addressed. Finally, the adequacy of logistics planning for future support of hardware and software maintenance requirements is considered. Keywords Human factors engineerings, man-machine relations, test and evaluation.
