Title: Human Engineering Design Criteria Standards Part 1: Project Introduction and Existing Standards
Published: August 13, 2013
Abstract: The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) requires general human systems integration (HSI) criteria for the design and development of human-machine interfaces for their technology, systems, equipment, and facilities. The goal of DHS Science and Technology (S&T) Human Factors and Behavioral Science division Human Systems Engineering Project is to identify, develop, and apply a standard process to enhance technology and system design, system safety, and operational efficiency. The project manager partnered with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Visualization and Usability Group (VUG) in furtherance of this effort. The goal of this phase of the project was to identify and review the body of existing human factors and HSI standards, best practices, and guidelines in order to map these to potential DHS needs, technology, and processes.
