Course detail: Application of Human Factors Engineering to the Life Cycle Management of Aeronautical Products and Systems
This introductory course will provide attendees with a solid foundation of knowledge and skills necessary to successfully apply Human Factors Engineering (HFE) and Human System Integration (HSI) to their daily work. Attendees will attain familiarity with and trust in HFE/HSI principles and practices to consider and implement at their workplace. This understanding will provide attendees with the knowledge and skills to inject HFE/HSI at an early stage in the life cycle of their aeronautical products and systems. Doing so will produce a safer, user-centered product that can lower the cost of the product over the entire course of its life cycle.
- Characteristics and capabilities of aircrew and how they are affected by the technical aircraft systems with which they work
- How the application of HFE and HSI considerations to aeronautical product and system design and modification contributes to safe operation
- How to consider and apply HFE and HSI principles and practices in aviation design, modification or maintenance duties
- How to consider and apply HFE in a systems integration approach to aeronautical product and system design and modification
- How to apply Human Factors requirements traceability to aeronautical product and system design and modifications
- The cost savings to aeronautical product and system or airworthiness projects through the early injection of HFE and HSI
Aeronautical product designers, aeronautical system specialist engineers, aviation system safety specialists, aircraft occupant safety specialists and airworthiness program managers.
