1 Human Systems Integration (HSI) Program INCOSE Space Coast Chapter Dr. Fran Greene for Colonel Larry Kimm AF Human Systems Integration Office Office of the Vice Chief of Staff 7 Feb 08 Fly – Fight – Win Headquarters U.S. Air Force

2 Overview What is Human Systems Integration? – and what it is not Policy overview for HSI Link with SE and INCOSE HSI for the Air Force Examples of HSI impact Air Force Human Systems Integration Office –Structure and accomplishments

3 Human Systems Integration Human factors? Human factors engineering? Human engineering? Applied behavioral psychology? Does Human Factors = Human Systems Integration ?

4 HSI is more than Human Factors Plugging hair dryer into hotel receptacle Where is the fuel door in that rental car? At last! – a visual! Work Methods? FL DoT ? More forklifts!

Seminara, scanned from Norman [1988, page 95] Maybe not so much common sense in design, but in adaptation to bad design!

6 What is HSI? Human Systems Integration: interdisciplinary technical and management processes for integrating human considerations within and across all system elements; an ) essential enabler to systems engineering practice (INCOSE, 2007 –Integrates nine human-centered domains: manpower, personnel, environment, training, safety, human factors engineering, occupational health, survivability and habitability – single voice for the HUMAN

7 The Voice for the Human - HSI

8 Identify System Design Considerations System Design Considerations Human Factors ( and Ergonomics) Survivability Habitability Occupational Health Safety Environment Manpower Political, Social & Tech feasibility Functionality (performance) Producibility Suitability Disposability Economic Feasibility Manufacture Flexibility (growth potential) Personnel Training Maintainability Quality Reliability Source: Blanchard & Fabrycky, Systems Engineering and Analysis, 2006, pp. 35 We shape our buildings; thereafter, our buildings shape us. -- Winston Churchill Supportability

9 What HSI Is HSI is part of the system engineering process Total Ownership costs must be Measure of Effectiveness in system trade-off studies vs. Acquisition costs [KPP – Lifecycle costs] Sub-systems must be designed with HSI before integrating the system Company/agency must be organized to implement systems engineering Tradition/Culture is an impediment to implementing HSI – culture change needed

10 The Resurgence of Systems Engineering within the Department of Defense Cascades to Industry Is Recognized by INCOSE Creates a need for more SE – affects education and training of tomorrows Systems Engineers DoD is eager to develop Systems Engineers HSI executes within existing processes of Systems Engineering We need your support and help – Industry and Students

11 Systems Engineering Revitalization Wynne policy memo, 2004,...all programs responding to a capabilities or requirements document, regardless of acquisition category, shall apply a robust systems engineering approach that balances total system performance and total ownership costs within the family-of-systems, system-of-systems context.

12 Systems Engineering and Acquisition Codifies SE revitalization – DoDI Defense Acquisition Guide – Chapter 4, Best practices for applied SE New career field within DoD – Program Systems Engineer – 1 Oct 07 Defense Acquisition University – courses to certify the PSE career field

13 New AFPD 63/20-1 -Acquisition and Sustainment Life Cycle Management Paragraph 4.14 Acquisition and sustainment activities shall apply Systems Engineering processes and practices throughout the life cycle, from the definition of concepts to meet user needs to disposal. Systems Engineering will be used to conceive, evolve, verify, deploy, monitor, support, and sustain the performance of fielded products and systems against achievable requirements developed in response to validated capability needs.

14 New AFPD 63/20-1 -Acquisition and Sustainment Life Cycle Management (cont) Systems Engineering will provide for reliable, flexible, timely, and cost-effective support throughout the life cycle. Systems Engineering processes shall be used to continuously monitor, review, and assess systems, subsystems, and end items. All weapon systems and non-services programs shall have an approved Systems Engineering Plan (SEP) that is maintained and updated for the life of the system.

15 HSI and Systems Engineering We execute WITHIN Systems Engineering – DoDI , Enclosure 7, Human Systems Integration: –The PM shall have a comprehensive plan for HSI in place early in the acquisition process...ensure that the system is built to accommodate the characteristics of the user population that will operate, maintain, and support the system...

16 HSI in INCOSE Handbook References to Human Systems Integration are throughout the new Version 3.1 CSEP studying reveals all the links to Human in the latest Handbook Added to Specialty Engineering – Chapter 9, Appendix M and throughout other chapters

17 Current HSI Status: Policy DoDD The Program Manager shall apply human systems integration to optimize total system performance (hardware, software, and human), operational effectiveness, and suitability, survivability, safety, and affordability. DoDI The purpose of the SDD phase is to … implement human systems integration (HSI)…. The Program Manager shall have a comprehensive plan for HSI in place early in the acquisition process to optimize total system performance, minimize total ownership costs, and ensure that the system is built to accommodate the characteristics of the user …

18 18 Current HSI Status: Policy Overview Defense Acquisition Guide, Ver. 1.5, 2005 –Chapter 4 – Systems Engineering –Chapter 6 – Human Systems Integration

19 Human Systems Integration: "Why do HSI?" Human Related Costs Sustainment Concept Refinement Technology Development System Development And Demonstration Production and Deployment Operations and Support Pre-Systems AcquisitionSystems Acquisition ABC IOCFOC Human Systems Integration Activity Hardware & Software Costs Human Related Costs Usually ~ 67% of Total Ownership Costs Human Related Costs Usually ~ 67% of Total Ownership Costs Human Related Costs 1955-present 1978-present

20 Human Systems Integration: When to do HSI? COST Procurement Ops / Support R&D / T&E 65 % 33 % Decisions made here and determine mission capability here FY98FY02FY06FY10FY14FY24FY32FY40FY48 Early Decisions Drive Total Ownership Cost TIME lock in 80-90% of costs here... Life cycle cost profile for DDG-51* - Navy

21 Good....and not so good – HSI examples Air Force has not had HSI program implemented to verify, trace or compute value added Retrospective views of HSI – put on your HSI glasses to peer into some Air Force aviation programs Soon youll be convinced HSI is ubiquitous

22 Human Systems Integration: HSI in Acquisitions F-22 Raptor Conducted Maintenance AFSC structure studies Proposed ACC maintenance restructure Training Issues Appropriate AFSCs Integrated Training MPT analyses offered three options for specialties: 15, 10, or 7 Max cost savings: 10 Source: AF submission to 2007 HASC Report Early HSI analyses cut total manpower and personnel requirements

23 Human Systems Integration: C-17 Refueling and Manpower C-17 Globemaster –Fueling station design change reduced manpower required from three to one Early HSI analyses decreased cost by making the job easier and the people more effective Domains Affected Manpower, Personnel, Training Human Factors Safety

24 Human Systems Integration: B-2 Maintenance Manpower B-2 Spirit –"Maytag Repairman" Syndrome Low utilization of manpower Task analysis / job structuring - appropriate? –Initial B-2 manpower force template identical to B-52 Low utilization rates = technicians "unemployed" –Not cost effective or efficient Maintaining proficiency very difficult Early HSI analyses not done, could raise utilization rates and cut total manpower Domains Affected Manpower Personnel Training

25 Human Systems Integration: Real World Consumer Example Cellular Telephone Requirements? Phone calls Camera Texting Web access Measures of effectiveness Time Accuracy Key strokes Tradeoffs - features vs. cost Requirements adult vs. teenager vs. college student Speed of texting, ease of entering data, speech recognition, speed dial, camera, internet access Metrics – size, weight, access, size of keys, ring tones, etc. or
