Abstract:

This report contains the results of an industry review done for the Crew-Centered Cockpit Design CCCD Field Demonstration Program, USAF Contract F33615-92-C-5936. The objectives of the program are to upgrade and validate a new system for cockpit design. The system consists of a Crew-Centered System Design Process CSDP and a Cockpit Design System CDS. The CSDP is intended to improve design practice, allowing designers to base decisions on mission requirements and crew capabilities while meeting installation constraints. The CDS offers improved design efficiency and include traceability functions that preserve the rationale for design decisions. The CCCD Program Office recognizes that the acceptance and long-term utility of the CCCD products depend on the interest and support of the cockpit development community, which includes aircraft prime contractors and government aircraft acquisition organizations. For this reason, a survey of four aircraft prime contracts was made during August and September of 1993. The objective of the survey was to elicit end-user requirements for CCCD products. Information was obtained from engineers, scientists, and managers who are involved in different crew station activities including pilot-vehicle interface PVI design, crew station design, human factors analysis, systems engineering, and operational analysis. The report documents the results of the survey.
