Abstract:

Alphatech proposes to develop an integrated human engineering toolset to support the effective design of complex human-machine systems. The toolset will be based around two central concepts: human-centered engineering and integrated tools. By human centered engineering we mean a system designed around human capabilities. By integrated tools, we mean a seamless set of software tools that can exchange data and be used in any combination without human intervention. The toolset will include ysis and allocation, workload and competency analysis, human-system interface prototyping, and system modeling. The Phase I effort will focus on specifying the functional requirements for each of the components, identifying specific tools, and specifying data exchange standards for integrating the toolset. The Phase I effort will provide the basis for Phase II development of a full-featured toolset to support the implementation of human engineering methods in the design of complex man-machine systems. This integrated toolset will be applicable to military, government, and commercial complex systems engineering. It will support the Navy in achieving the most efficient and productive use of human resources onboard ship and thereby support the goal of reduced manning requirements.
