Research Institution

As the Navy continues to emphasize the Naval Capabilities Development Process for evaluating material and non-material solutions, the importance of quantifying the effects of Human Systems Integration (HSI) factors continues to increase. The objective of this Phase I SBIR is to provide Navy analysts comprehensive insight into the impact HSI factors have on system level performance and total ownership cost (TOC). The decision support tool will support a multi-step assessment process that traces warfighting capabilities to system requirements, measures of effectiveness, and eventually to the HSI factors that influence those measures. The results will be displayed in a multi-dimensional trade space integrating cost, schedule, performance, and risk. FTI will leverage a data integration framework initially developed for the AF and Missile Defense Agency. Innovative HSI performance measure utility functions will be developed and integrated into a proven cost versus performance trade space. A standardized TOC method capturing cost impacts of HSI factors, such as manpower and training, will be integrated into a common database enabling both HSI practitioners and acquisition decision makers to evaluate solutions. The Phase I program will validate Phase II requirements through interacting with Navy analysts. The Phase II program will result in a fully functional prototype.
