Human System Engineering From Human Views to Human Readiness Levels

Old Dominion University

Presentation Menu


This talk discusses the role of Human System Engineering (HSE) within the System Engineering (SE) discipline. It describes two HSE initiatives that are enabling better integration of humans and systems. The Human Views comprise a system architecture viewpoint that provides a perspective on the human roles, activities, and information flows required by a complex system. The Human Readiness Levels assess the degree to which human-focused requirements are incorporated into design decisions and the readiness of a system to interact with its human operator. Together these two efforts encourage SE for the total system by supporting a comprehensive integration of the human component into the systems engineering effort, which is critical to the design, development, and operation of successful systems.
