Abstract:

The U.S. Army Research Institute is developing a set of computerized aids for the evaluation of weapon system designs in terms of the manpower and personnel that they require. This report is a detailed design specification for software that assists in estimating the number of operators and maintainers required for a given weapons systems design to achieve that systems criterion performance. Specifications in the form of menu maps, data entry templates, a high level state transition diagram, leveled data flow diagrams, a structure chart, entity relationship diagrams, and entity definitions are provided for the user interface, software and databases. Database security and user acceptance are also discussed. The development of this design has not been funded, but the design specification may prove useful for other projects. Keywords Interface design evaluation, MANPRINT, Manpower.
