Description

Technology may lead the way, but it's up to real live humans to make sure it's built to meet the needs of fellow human users. In this Introduction to Human Systems Integration (HSI) course, discover how to address human-related issues in system development in an integrated manner. Explore the principles of human factors engineering, personnel selection, training, safety, and other HSI technical domains. Learn how these activities across various areas should be integrated to reduce personnel costs and improve system performance. Plus, find out how to use an HSI program to optimize total system performance, minimize total ownership costs and ensure that your system is built to accommodate the characteristics of your user population that will operate, maintain, and support it. After all, that's the key to success for your organization.

What You Will Learn

  • HSI program planning, requirements, and metrics
  • HSI analyses
  • HSI domains
  • Tradeoffs between domains
  • HSI test and evaluation methods

How You Will Benefit
