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 systemCompany/agency must be organized to implement systems engineeringTradition/Culture is an impediment to implementing HSI – culture change needed
10 The Resurgence of Systems Engineering within the Department of Defense Cascades to IndustryIs Recognized by INCOSECreates a need for more SE – affects education and training of tomorrow’s Systems EngineersDoD is eager to develop Systems EngineersHSI executes within existing processes of Systems EngineeringWe 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 – DoDIDefense Acquisition Guide – Chapter 4, Best practices for “applied” SENew career field within DoD – Program Systems Engineer – 1 Oct 07Defense Acquisition University – courses to certify the PSE career field
13 New AFPD 63/20-1 -Acquisition and Sustainment Life Cycle Management Paragraph 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 HandbookReferences to Human Systems Integration are throughout the new Version 3.1CSEP studying reveals all the links to Human in the latest HandbookAdded 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 …”

19 Human Systems Integration: "Why do HSI?" SustainmentConceptRefinementTechnologyDevelopmentSystemAnd DemonstrationProduction andDeploymentOperations andSupportPre-Systems AcquisitionSystems AcquisitionABCIOCFOCHuman Systems Integration ActivityHardware &Software CostsHuman Related Costs Usually ~ 67%of Total Ownership CostsHumanRelatedCostsHuman Related Costs1955-presentAs you can see from the outline of the acquisition process on the top, currently, the manpower issues probably don’t gain any light of day until after milestone C – or just as the system is being fielded and transitions into operations and support. There is where the wrong number of people, of the wrong kind will begin to be evident – but Manpower might not have been asked or didn’t have the right information soon enough to make an impact.We all know the cost of the human in the operations and support of any system. Long term costs as well, as these individuals retire and become eligible for retirement and possibly disability. The actual hardware is “cheap” compared to the “people” costs – including the training of operators, maintainers and sustainers1978-present

31 HSI in Systems Engineering HSI Working / Interest Group Formed – INCOSEINCOSE Vision 2020 recommended HSI involvementAF Center for Systems Engineering took team leadershipINCOSE Handbook section published Aug 2007HSI learning seminar hosted by INCOSE, June 2007Another seminar occurred at 2008 annual workshopIntegrating the Human in Every System - April 2008 INSIGHTOur recent Joint working group efforts, of which many of your people are a part, have accomplished much this past year. We now have a good working relationship with INCOSE, HFES, the AF Center for Systems Engineering and several of the working technical groups and panels.We believe we have formed a good working relationship to move HSI forward in helping our systems engineers. As each of you should be aware, Systems Engineering is being revitalized within the DoD and we believe we are providing good value added in this regard. A recently drafted Memorandum of Agreement between INCOSE and the HFES is in final coordination at the present time.

42 AF Human Systems Integration Top 5 Issues EconomicsEducation and TrainingFuture Concepts – Integration in SECommon TerminologyTools and MethodologiesLet me conclude with a brief overview of the research challenges facing HSI policy and guidance.The first is the lack of effective tools for HSI practitioners, whether they be design engineers who want to follow HSI tenets, systems engineers putting the moving parts together and making trade-offs for optimum system function, or program managers making milestone decisions. Engineers use a great many tools now, and we are just starting to break ground on making HSI an integral part of the available arsenal. The tools and methodologies will shape the way requirements can be stated for acquisition professionals and system designers.We are commissioning a future concepts study to help ascertain where HSI will have the most impact in future systems and missions, and where HSI may have too little value added to make it worth while to focus our limited resources. This study will also help with the essential problem of translating HSI tenets into requirements for acquisition professionals.The economics piece of the puzzle is foundational. There is no point in spending more money in the design and initial acquisition phase if there’s no payoff in performance and life-cycle cost. A sound foundation based on the real cost and the real gain of institutionalizing HSI will enable critical decision making and those proactive tradeoffs mentioned earlier.Finally, we need to develop the education and training plan that will satisfy the needs of the very diverse group of people whose jobs intersect with HSI. With the Navy’s growing program as a starting point, we are in good shape, but there is a lot of work to be done to define and integrate HSI education and training for the Air Force and the Joint Force, from modules for Defense Acquisition University to a basic concept understanding for developmental education, to an informed consumer level for our senior leaders.
43 What does HSI mean outside DoD? Industry/Government partnershipsHSI certification, if implemented, may affect you – we need your input and issuesSystems Engineering Education and Training issues, both for degree programs and courses in HSIWe all need professionals – GS, Military, Contractors –we will all work togetherWe have to recruit, train and educate HSI professionalsHSI makes sense for all products!

It is a comprehensive, integrating, interdisciplinary process that addresses the top down synthesis and development of a system that is focused on optimally satisfying the full range of requirements of the system. Human Systems Integration is only one of many other processes that work within the systems engineering construct. Total system design includes the full range of the HSI domains. We must address all of these issues to ensure the acquisition process delivers combat capability that is affordable, effective and leverages the tremendous potential of our people. Human Systems Integration works the human domains with the hardware, software and the environment and all of the associated interfaces.You note from the left side of this chart the many ilities that must be considered in designing a system. There are certainly many more, but the very important, and overarching ones are Usability, Operational Suitability, Sustainability, Survivability and Life Cycle Affordability. Each of these will reveal how well you have integrated the human with the systems we are developing.
