Guidelines & Criteria for the Functional Integration of Avionic Systems with Crew Members in Command,
BUNDESAMT FUER WEHRTECHNIK UND BESCHAFFUNG KOBLENZ (GERMANY F R)
Pagination or Media Count:
This paper advocates a maximum of interdisciplinary work. Accordingly emphasis is put on the need for better functional integration of the human member of the system, and the minimizing of his workload, instead of only reducing it in some areas. The author proposes to combine the mental and the physical part to make maximum use of the human members unsurpassed capabilities. He is still the main limiting factor for the system effectiveness, due to the inappropriate interfacefunctional integration with the systems technical means. Although this paper does present a systematic approach by means of the above combination, the author has no illusion that the development of such an integrated airborne system can be properly engineered now to the possible optimum. Such a work still relies more on art than engineering.
