The human features prominently in the design of manned systems. However, engineering curricula do not typically address mental and physical characteristics of the human. Without this knowledge, design engineers do not have the tools to quantify the characteristics of the human and therefore often neglect the centrality of the human to systems design. Such human characteristics must be taken into account in the design, testing, and implementation of new technology and are central to human systems integration HSI.
