This handbook provides metric anthropometric data on U.S. military personnel. The body size and proportion information is of great importance in the human factors engineering of clothing and personal equipment as well as military vehicles such as tanks, submarines, and aircraft. Included with the data are the data sources, diagrams of body measurements, and definitions of related terminology.
This handbook is intended to provide non-binding human factors engineering guidelines, preferred practices, and reference data for design of Army materiel. This handbook also serves to provide expanded, supplementary, and Army-relevant human factors engineering information that may be too detailed, lengthy, or service-oriented for inclusion in military standards, such as MIL-STD-1472. Programmatic and technique-oriented guidelines may be found in DOD-HDBK-763.
This handbook provides analysis techniques and methodologies for management information system development and presents human engineering guidelines for detailed user-computer interface software design. Where hardware design guidance is needed, the requirements of MIL-STD-1472 "Human Engineering Design Criteria for Military Systems, Equipment, and Facilities" should apply. This handbook may also be applied to non-developmental item (NDI) acquisitions.
This handbook provides guidance and assistance to human engineers and managers in application of MIL-H-46855 to the system/equipment acquisition process. It assists relatively inexperienced personnel assigned responsibility for Human Engineering understand and utilize Human Engineering in the acquisition process. It also tries to provide a common, unified approach as to what Human Engineering is and how it relates to other areas.
This document establishes general information, symbology, and display format requirements for hover, position, transition, cruise and weapon delivery modes of rotary-wing aircraft missions.
This document presents human engineering principles, design criteria, and practices to integrate humans (their requirements) into systems and facilities. This is desired to achieve effectiveness, simplicity, efficiency, reliability, and safety of the system operation, training, and maintenance. This document contains interesting and useful information on items with which humans commonly interface including data and illustrations on visual fields, controls and displays (manual, visual, and audio), physical dimensions and strengths of humans, ground workspace design requirements, environments, design for maintainability, design for remote handling, hazards, and safety considerations. This document contains extensive figures and tables on human parameters.
This document defines the requirements for performing a task performance analysis where such analysis as part of the development and acquisition of systems, equipments and facilities.
This document provides task descriptions for conducting an integrated human factors engineering program to the development and acquisition of intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) systems. The human factors engineering program shall apply to all system engineering analyses, studies, concepts, systems, equipment, software, and facilities, including aerospace vehicle equipment, operational support equipment, maintenance support equipment, depot support equipment, test support equipment, special test equipment, training equipment, and modifications to government furnished equipment and commercial equipment.
This document defines terms frequently used in human factors standardization documents by providing common meanings of such terms to ensure that they will be interpreted consistently and in the manner intended.
MIL-HDBK-46855 Human Engineering Requirements for Military Systems Equipment and Facilities
[closest match: [node:2572]]
This document details requirements and tasks to be applied during development and acquisition program phases to improve the human interface with equipment and software. Its use should allow achievement of effective and economical utilization of human resources. The document is intended to ensure that; the system requirements are achieved by appropriate use of the human component; through proper design of equipment, software, and environment, the personnel-equipment/software combination meets system performance goals; design features will not constitute a hazard to personnel; trade-off points between automated vs. manual operation have been chosen for peak system efficiency within appropriate cost limits; and human engineering applications are technically adequate. Topics covered are analysis functions including human performance parameters, equipment capabilities, and task environments design; test and evaluation; analysis to be performed such as workload analysis dynamic simulation, and data requirements. Some selected terms are defined such as critical human factors. An application matrix is provided detailing program phases when each task is appropriate. Refer to MIL-STD-1472 for task details.
This document establishes and defines the requirements for applying human engineering to the development and acquisition of military systems, equipment and facilities. These requirements include system analysis, task analysis, system design (including computer software design), equipment and facilities design, testing, and documentation and reporting. This document is intended to assure that; system requirements are achieved by appropriate use of the human component; through proper design of equipment, software and environment, the personnel-equipment/software combination meets system performance goals; design features will not constitute a hazard to personnel; trade-off points between automated vs. manual operation have been chosen for peak system efficiency within appropriate cost limits; human engineering applications are technically adequate; the equipment is designed to facilitate required maintenance; procedures for operating and maintaining equipment are efficient, reliable and safe; potential error-inducing equipment design features are minimized; the layout of the facility and the arrangement of equipment affords efficient communication and use; the contractors provide the necessary manpower and technical capability to accomplish the above objectives.
