(2) Exactly right. AR 602-1 'implements the requirement to integrate human
factors engineering (HFE) throughout the materiel acquisition cycle.'
It is a document with which you need to be intimately familiar.
602-1, 'Human Factors Engineering Program,' is divided into four sections.
The introductory section (Paragraphs 1 and 2) defines the purpose of the
regulation and the meaning of HFE in the Army. The next section (Paragraph
3) details the objectives of the Army's HFE program.
The third section
(Paragraph 4) is quite detailed, and it explains the Army's HFE policy and
how it applies to all phases of the acquisition cycle.
The fourth major
section (Paragraph 5) delineates major responsibilities for human factors
engineering programs within the Army.
Before discussing the next document, we would like you to answer the
According to AR 602-1, when in the life cycle of a
system will HFE be initiated?
(1) Simulation phase. Turn to Page 68.
(2) Full scale engineering development phase. Turn to Page 20.
(3) Concept exploration phase. Turn to Page 36.

(2) The components of a system are important, but surely they have no more
importance than the system itself or its operation. Return to Page 96.

(4) Look a little more closely, two of these answers are close and one is
way out of line. Remember, we're looking for the instance in which the use
of systems analysis is most important. Return to Page 88.
