Operational roles, aircrew systems and human factors in future high performance aircraft: papers presented at the Aerospace Medical Panel's Specialists' Meeting held in Lisbon, Portugal, October [P F Iampietro; North Atlantic Treaty Organization. Advisory Group for Aerospace Research and Development. Human factors science or technologies are multidisciplinary fields incorporating contributions from psychology, engineering, industrial design, statistics, operations research, and anthropometry. Human factors can affect aviation maintenance and work performance is broad. As humans do not all have the same capabilities, strengths, weaknesses. Requirements (DAR), conducted a human factors analysis of aircrew operational tasks in a Fixed-Wing Search and Rescue (FWSAR) aircraft cargo compartment. The aim of this study was to provide guidance on minimum cargo compartment dimensions based on operational duties performed by Search and Rescue Technicians (SAR Techs).Author: Tracy Teeple, Mark Rutley, Jason McHarg, Lori Coady. Organizations are now realizing that human factors programs are an important piece of a safety management system. There is an across-the-board effort to raise the priority of HF programs.

Perhaps the simplest example is the progression from an aircraft communication addressing and reporting system interface to a future air navigation system (FANS) interface for data link. Boeing initially studied the effects of uplink message formats on pilot comprehension in operational . "As stated before, Human factors refers to the study of human capabilities and limitations in the workplace. Human factors researchers study system performance,the interaction of maintenance personnel with the equipment they use, the written and verbal procedures and rules they follow, and the environmental conditions of any system. The study and application of human factors is complex because there is not just one simple answer to fix or change how people are affected by certain conditions or situations. Aviation maintenance human factors research has the overall goal to identify and optimize the factors that affect human performance in maintenance and inspection. Factors which were assigned to only one or two of the 75 accidents are not listed in fig. 4. These factors included mismanagement of fuel system and selected unsuitable area for landing or takeoff.

Human factors professionals, pilots, and operational personnel in air traffic management and related practitioners who know about “systems” only as a general and often vague term for something complex can benefit from knowing a bit of the history, the people, . Human Factors in Aviation is the first comprehensive review of contemporary applications of human factors research to aviation. A "must" for aviation professionals, equipment and systems designers, pilots, and managers--with emphasis on definition and solution of specific problems.   The incorporation of human factors when solving engineering problems, particularly in maintenance, can no longer be ignored where high standards of performance are expected. other documents with regard to the role of Human Factors in the present and future operational environ­ ments. Special emphasis will be directed to the Human Factors issues that may influence the design, transition and in-service use of the future ICAO CNS/ATM systems.” One of the methods chosen to implement Assembly.
