Research Institution
We propose development of the Human Systems Integration (HSI) Engineering Analysis Tool, or HEAT. HEAT provides advice for engineers using material-design software on how their design choices affect all nine HSI domains: Human factors engineering, Survivability, Manpower, Personnel, Training, Environment Safety, Occupational, and Habitability. HEAT is designed in modular fashion to integrate with the U.S. Marine Corps Framework for Assessing Cost and Technology (FACT). We apply lessons we learned from providing HSI assessment on previous vehicle projects for the Army Future Combat System, the Army Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicle, and the Department of Homeland Securitys redesign of the ambulance patient compartment.
