ECSS-E-ST-10-11C, SPACE ENGINEERING: HUMAN FACTORS ENGINEERING (31-JUL-2008)., This Standard defines requirements for the integration of the human in the loop for space system products. Thus it provides all requirements to be applied when the presence of the human is planned on‐board, or for the nominal or non‐nominal interaction of the human with the system, subsystem or equipment to be designed (e.g. a ground based human‐computer interface). This Standard identifies requirements for the equipment for implementing a proper manned system that takes into consideration efficiency, effectiveness and wellbeing of the on‐board crew, and ground based operators of human‐in‐the‐loop systems. This Standard also identifies the verification methods and related methodologies to be used to confirm compliance to the above mentioned requirements. This Standard is applicable to both the flight and the ground segment of the space system and refers to the maximum extent possible to already existing HFE non‐space domain standards, deviating only when the specific application environment dictates it. The application of human factors (that in the space domain includes ergonomics) to systems design enhances effectiveness and efficiency, improves human working conditions, and diminishes possible adverse effects of use on human health, safety and performance. Applying ergonomics to the design of systems involves taking account of human capabilities, skills, limitations and needs. A space system design will consider human factors and especially the two following main aspects from the very beginning of the conceptual phase. Firstly the human being will be correctly taken into account in the design of the hardware, software and operations products and secondly the corresponding organisation and training will be addressed in parallel to the design of the hardware and software. This standard provides: * a set of requirements for a human centred design process applied to a space system compatible with the ISO Standard 13407:1999 ‐ Human‐centred design processes for interactive systems. A planned accompanying Handbook will provide: * a tailoring guide of the existing standard ‐ ISO STD 17399:2003 previously known as NASA STD 3000 \"Space systems ‐ Man‐systems integration\". A key issue of the human centred design approach is the involvement of the stakeholders from the beginning and continuously throughout the project. Benefits of a human centred design include increased productivity, enhanced quality of work, reductions in support and training costs, and improved user satisfaction. This approach aims to help those responsible for managing hardware and software design processes as well as planning for operations to identify and plan effective and timely human‐centred design activities. It complements existing design approaches and methods. NOTE The customerís total cost of ownership will be dramatically reduced if HFE practices are well integrated into all project phases, from the very beginning.
