A recommended pilot-system integration (i.e., crew interface and system integration) approach for concept development is described in Figure 1. The approach emphasizes the fundamental need for a top-down design methodology with particular focus on clear operational performance requirements and functional integration. While this document is primarily aimed at aircraft systems design and integration, the methodology is applicable to a wide range of design and integration situations. It is derived from well established human factors engineering design principles.
This document provides a concept development guide to the human engineering specialist and the aircraft systems designer for pilot-system integration that will enhance safety, productivity, and cost-effectiveness. It addresses the resulting processes of system development including aspects of interface design and automation philosophy.
