(3) That's right. This document states, in general, the Army perspective of
HFE in the acquisition cycle.
This document discussed the application of HFE to three major areas of
(1) Analysis (concept exploration).
(2) Design and development (demonstration and validity).
(3) Test and evaluation (full scale development).
The major concern of analysis is the allocation of functions of men
Remember, when determining this breakdown, you're concerned
with human performance parameters (the information you covered in Section I
of this course). On Page 2 of this document you can see that the design and
development stage encompasses those areas you reviewed in Section II of this
course--systems analysis, task analysis, and requirement application.
Finally, test and evaluation is required to verify that the design meets
human engineering and life support criteria and is compatible with the
overall system requirements.
Paragraph 3.1 of MIL-H-46855 details these
The use of this document is varied. Turn to Page 11 and quickly read
As you can see, this document can be used as a means of
specifying requirements for contractor support. The appendix (on Page 15)
details this use.
Assume that you are responsible for the development of
technical data for a request for proposal (RFP) or request for quotation
controlled). Using 46855, with what requirements will the contractor comply
(1) Since the proposed contract does not involve "significant human
interface for operation/maintenance/control," the selection guide should not
be used. Turn to Page 98.
(2) The contractor should use Paragraph 126.96.36.199.1 (mock-ups and models)
during the demonstration and validation phase. Turn to Page 79.
(3) The contractor should use guidance provided in Paragraph 188.8.131.52.1
(mock-ups and modules) during the full scale development phase.
