Abstract:

The Manned Systems Group of the U.S. Army Research Institute is responsible for the development of analytical methods in support of the Armys MANPRINT Manpower and Personnel Integration initiative. This report deals with the trial application of HARDMAN II, an automated derivative of Hardman Hardware vs. Manpower analysis to the Forward Area Air Defense FAAD Line of Sight-Forward Heavy LOS-FH system. The analyses were conducted to test the HARDMAN II methodology in a situation where data requirements were minimally met and where time constraints were severe. Another objective was to provide decision makers with timely input in the form of workload-driven maintenance manpower estimates for LOS-FH, thus demonstrating its utility as a MANPRINT tool. Results showed that manpower requirements would be adequate only if the Built-In Test BIT equipment met required performance specifications. At more realistic levels of BIT performance, it was demonstrated that for each LOS-FH battery of 12 systems, a total of five Military Occupational Specialty MOS 24X systems mechanics would be required instead of the four originally called for. Keywords Front end analysis, Maintenance manpower.
