Computer programs emerge as the outcome of complex human processes of cognition, communication and negotiation, which serve to establish the meaningful embedding of the computer system in its intended use context.

This report presents the findings of a Task-Operator study for the Primary Flight Control (Pri-Fly) major operating stations aboard Tarawa class (LHA) ships. The LHA carries a variety of attack and cargo helicopters, plus AV-8A Sea Harrier jet aircraft. Pri-Fly is the area of the ship which controls the landing and recovery of aircraft, as well as flight control when aircraft are in the immediate vicinity of the ship. Two main positions were examined by this study, the Air Administrator (Air-Boss) and the Assistant Air Administrator (Mini-Boss). The purposes of this study were to perform a task-operator study of Pri-Fly personnel task requirements, to identify human-equipment interface design problems given the existing configuration of Pri-Fly within LHAs, and to provide general design recommendations based on the findings of the study. Seven tasks were undertaken to meet the objectives of the project. Overall, the review identified numerous human engineering design problems in Pri-Fly, many of which severely limit the performance of Pri-Fly personnel. Based on this review, it is asserted that significant improvement can be realized, in terms of air operations safety and efficiency, by instituting a Pri-Fly improvement program.

Baker, Clifford C., Kirkpatrick, Mark and Heasly, Christopher C. (1988): Experimental Studies of Daytime Running Light Design Factors. In: Proceedings of the Human Factors Society 32nd Annual Meeting 1988. pp. 967-970.
Data from accident rate field tests have suggested that the use of Daytime Running Lights (DRL) on vehicles may have potential for reduction of collision likelihood and severity. With regard to the possible introduction of DRL in the United States, a number of research and design issues have arisen. These involve effects of design parameters on vehicle conspicuity under daylight conditions including central lamp intensity, beam distribution, lamp area, lamp color, number of lamps, and lamp/background contrast. Experiments were conducted to determine effects of DRL design parameters on peripheral detection of an oncoming vehicle under daylight conditions, detection of operating turn signals in the presence of a masking DRL, and degree of discomfort glare produced by DRL under twilight conditions.

Malone, Thomas B. and Baker, Clifford C. (1988): Human Factors for Naval Systems: Enhanced HARDMAN. In: Proceedings of the Human Factors Society 32nd Annual Meeting 1988. pp. 1100-1103.
The U.S. Navy is developing methods for integrating the disciplines concerned with personnel considerations into the weapon system acquisition process. This integration essentially involves human factors engineering, manpower, personnel and training, and life support engineering. Since the Navy already has the in system development, the process of integration of personnel issues will involve expanding the HARDMAN methods and data to include human factors engineering and life support engineering, resulting in the Enhanced HARDMAN process. This paper describes the objectives of Enhanced HARDMAN.

Malone, Thomas B., Baker, Clifford C. and Permenter, Kathryn E. (1988): Human Engineering in the Naval Sea Systems Command. In: Proceedings of the Human Factors Society 32nd Annual Meeting 1988. pp. 1104-1107.
This paper describes the status of human engineering in the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA). NAVSEA has pursued four major thrusts in the development and application of human engineering technology: 1) human engineering research and development efforts, 2) human engineering front-end analysis, 3) human engineering audits as part of the Logistic Review Group (LRG) formal review of each program, and 4) ship and ship system engineering design and evaluation. This paper describes the progress that NAVSEA has made in each area.

Heasly, Christopher C., Permenter, Kathryn E., Malone, Thomas B., Baker, Clifford C. and Lawrence, Louis G. (1988): Determination of Program Initiation Phase MANPRINT Requirements for the Lighter, Amphibious Heavy-Lift (LAMP-H). In: Proceedings of the Human Factors Society 32nd Annual Meeting 1988. pp. 1113-1116.
The objective of this paper is to describe the approach utilized in the development of MANPRINT requirements for the Lighter, Amphibious-Heavy Lift (LAMP-H). LAMP-H is an air cushioned vehicle with a crew of six: a pilot, a navigator, and four stevedores who load and unload equipment from the vessel. The project was initiated during the program initiation phase of development. Several types of Air Cushion Vehicle (ACV) lighter craft were evaluated as baseline comparison systems for LAMP-H. The effort involved insuring compliance with human engineering design criteria and practice, incorporating lessons learned from analogous air-cushioned vehicles lighter craft, and addressing habitability, noise and other design issues affecting crew performance of tasks critical to the operation and maintenance of the LAMP-H. This paper details the analyses and techniques implemented in the early phases of the weapon system acquisition process for designing improved soldier-machine systems, as well as the products of the effort.
