JOB ID: 142111 Specialty: Engineering




Unique Skills:

Principal Duties and Responsibilities:
1. Provides guidelines in application of Human Factors (HF) requirements to equipment design during all stages of the design process, from concept definition through detailed design.

2. Applies structured quantitative or subjective methods to generate HF requirements and ensures human centered design and optimum usability in the operation, maintainability, and/or manufacturing of aircraft systems.

3. Leads and/or performs structured test plan development and analysis of full and part task simulations using prototyping tools (e.g., software simulated display layouts, pilot-in-the-loop hardware simulations) to obtain early, multiple user feedback for HF requirement definition.

4. Provides analysis of detailed design concepts to functional teams through the use of modeling techniques for reach and force requirements for a wide anthropometric range of individuals of a targeted population.

5. Holds multidisciplinary review meetings as needed to clarify analysis goals. Creates specific project milestones that can be integrated in the overall group product plan and schedule.

6. Creates and supervises pilot workload assessments through measurement techniques such as rating scales, questionnaires, and flight technical error analysis.

7. Generates estimates of procedural human error using task analysis and human error analysis methods.

8. Collaborates on the coordination and development of facilities and/or technology to support simulation testing.

9. Creates flight test plans and reports, engineering reports and/or memos to substantiate compliance with human factors certification regulations

10. Develops trade studies on system design concepts and presents human factors recommendations to multidisciplinary design teams and upper management.

Problem Solving Opportunities:
1. Must be able to determine appropriate test scope for problem resolution according to schedule impact.

2. Must be able to determine if available methods are sufficient for problem resolution and if not, provide a plan for risk mitigation.
