ADDRESSING HUMAN FACTORS/PILOT INTERFACE ISSUES OF COMPLEX, INTEGRATED AVIONICS AS PART OF THE TECHNICAL STANDARD ORDER (TSO) PROCESS
|Publication Date:||10 May 2002|
This notice provides guidance to facilitate the identification and resolution of human factors/pilot interface issues associated with complex, integrated avionics submitted for new or amended Technical Standard Order Authorization. This notice has three parts. The first is a suggested Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) process for evaluating the human factors/pilot interface avionics issues as part of the TSO process. The second is a discussion of some of the more prevalent, re-occurring human factors/pilot interface issues that have been observed during previous avionics TSO projects. The third is appendix 1, Part III: Summary of Human Factors Related Requirements & Recommendations, which contains requirements and recommendations extracted from TSOs and advisory circulars (ACs) to aid in issue resolution. Together these three parts will aid in the early identification and resolution of human factors/pilot interface issues, thus streamlining the certification process to avoid costly late system design changes.
