"A critical task is one requiring human performance which, if not accomplished in accordance with system requirements, will likely have adverse effects on cost, system reliability, efficiency, effectiveness, or safety. The Critical Task Analysis Report (CTAR) describes the results of analyses of critical tasks performed by the end user and provides a basis for identifying high risk tasks affecting human-system performance, mission accomplishment, system suitability, and safety. The analyses and results described support verification that human engineering technical risks have been identified, minimized, or mitigated and that human-system performance has been adequately addressed from early design development through test and evaluation of the system, equipment, or facility."
"This standard establishes and defines the requirements for applying human engineering to the design, development, and acquisition of military systems, equipment, and facilities. These requirements include the work to be accomplished in conducting a human engineering effort integrated with the total system engineering and development effort. These requirements are the basis for including human engineering in proposals; system, equipment, software and associated user interfaces, and facility analysis, design and test; and documentation and reporting."
"The Human Engineering Design Approach Document-Maintainers (HEDAD-M) describes equipment which interface with maintainers. This document provides a source of data to evaluate the extent to which equipment having an interface with maintainers meets human performance requirements and human engineering criteria."
"The Human Engineering Design Approach Document Operator (HEDAD-O) describes equipment that interfaces with operators. This document provides a source of data to evaluate the extent to which equipment having an interface with operators meets human performance requirements and human engineering criteria, and provides the human engineering rationale for the design."
"This handbook provides human engineering design guidelines and reference data for design of military systems, equipment, and facilities. (Programmatic and technique-oriented guidelines may be found in DOD-HDBK-763 and MIL-HDBK-761.)"
"The Human Engineering Systems Analysis Report describes the human engineering efforts conducted as part of the system analysis and present results. The data are used by the procuring activity to evaluate the appropriateness and feasibility of system functions and roles allocated to operators and maintainers. This data item description (DID) contains the format and content preparation instructions for the Human Engineering Systems Analysis Report resulting from applicable tasks delineated in the SOW"
"This handbook 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."
"This handbook provides human engineering (HE) (a) program tasks, (b) procedures and preferred practices, and (c) methods for application to system acquisition. The program tasks outline the work to be accomplished by a contractor or subcontractor in conducting an HE effort integrated with the total system engineering and development effort. They serve as a basis for offerors to provide HE program information during the solicitation process."
