Abstract
"Carlow and Trident are pleased to submit this proposal to develop a rapid analysis tool to reduce time and effort in conducting human systems integration (HSI) analyses in the early stages of Navy system acquisition. The need for the rapid analysis toolstems from the fact that, in early stages of system acquisition, there is typically not sufficient time and/or funding to support a complete top down requirements analysis for each of several competing concepts. The rapid analysis tool should supportthe application of HSI to assessment of alternative concepts as part of the AoA in the areas of (a) conduct of quick-look workload and manpower assessments; (b) analysis of task sequences, dependencies and performance requirements; (c) identification ofhuman performance issues and concerns with alternative concepts, and (d) assessment of the expected human performance interoperability of concepts.The rapid analysis tool developed in this project will be designated the Rapid Personnel Options Requirements Tool (RAPPORT) tool. RAPPORT will support the computation of average workload for an alternate concept performing a mission scenario. The toolwill also support the analysis of tasks and the identification of human performance issues and human performance interoperability requirements with alternative concepts. This tool will support early HSI analysis to assess workloads, manning and human performance of commercial as well as milita
