Abstract
The proposed work includes the design of a decision system capable of taking high-level human-system integration (HSI) design requirements and propagating those design decisions to their consequences to determine cost changes. We will capture the relationships between platform technologies, component classes, and system level parameters and the human systems integration elements. We will capture these and a myriad of other causal relationships from human factors subject matter experts and provide NAVSEA with a decision tool to help them visualize and understand the trades between requirements, design components and features, HSI elements and the related life cycle costs of alternate designs. The focus of this effort is to augment the current NAVSEA processes so that concepts can be easily or automatically evaluated for Human Systems Integration impact and be associated with an HSI impact parameter. This HSI impact parameter will give the decision maker better insight into how each concept compares in the human factors elements. This HSI impact parameter may decompose into subcategories such as manpower, personnel, training and habitability. These HSI parameters have a direct effect on life cycle costs and can be used to better predict and estimate these costs during the conceptual design phase of a program.
