This investigative study demonstrates the benefits of addressing human considerations early in the system development life cycle that will bring long-term benefit to program managers and systems engineers. The approach used a retrospective content analysis of documents from weapon systems acquisition programs, namely Major Defense Acquisition Programs. Binary logistic regression analyses were conducted to predict the effect of the presence of words relating to Human Systems Integration on the success of programs. This investigative study corroborates the idea that some benefit maybe derived from implementing Human Systems Integration during the weapon systems acquisition life cycle.
