HFI INSTRUCTIONS

The AMS has the following instructions that relate to HFI:

The IPT Leader shall develop a Human Factors Integration plan consistent with the Through Life Management Plan. (ref:10510001)

The IPT Leader shall include Human Factors Integration in the procurement strategy (ref:10510002)

The IPT Leader shall inform the Principal Personnel Officers of any likely impact on future recruitment criteria or trade group structures which will be required to support the introduction of the product (ref:10510005)

The IPT Leader should establish an Human Factors Integration (HFI) focus as part of the IPT (ref:10510007)

The IPT Leader should seek advice from HF centres of excellence both in MOD and industry (ref:10510008)

The Human Factors Integration (HFI) plan should provide an audit trail recording all decisions and actions made from the Early Human Factors Analysis through to the System Requirements Document and the development of the tender assessment criteria (ref:10510009)

Provision for Human Factors Integration (HFI) should be made in the Equipment Plan (ref:10510010)

The IPT Leader should produce a target audience description (TAD) in consultation with the appropriate members of the IPT. This should contain information on the characteristics of intended users (ref:10510013)

The IPT Leader should produce a defined operational scenario which is sufficiently detailed to support Human Factors Integration (HFI) design decisions and evaluation testing (ref:10510014)

The System Requirements Document should include the performance to be achieved when the product is operated, supported and maintained by the full range of end users as specified in the Target Audience Description. (ref:10510015)

The Systems Requirements Document should include the performance to be achieved when the product is operated under realistic operational conditions and mission profiles (ref:10510016)

The need to confirm product performance characteristics through Human Factors Integration (HFI) trials and demonstrations should be addressed (ref:10510027)

The need to make appropriate arrangements for operational resources for Human Factors Integration (HFI) trials and demonstrations should be addressed (ref:10510028)

The requirements for task analysis data and training needs analysis (TNA) data to support Human Factors Integration (HFI) and Logistic Support Analysis activities should be addressed (ref:10510029)

The responsibility for collecting and maintaining task analysis and Training Needs Analysis data should be identified (ref:10510030)

The need to confirm product performance characteristics through Human Factors Integration (HFI) trials and demonstrations should be addressed (ref:10510027)

The need to make appropriate arrangements for operational resources for Human Factors Integration (HFI) trials and demonstrations should be addressed (ref:10510028)

The requirements for task analysis data and training needs analysis (TNA) data to support Human Factors Integration (HFI) and Logistic Support Analysis activities should be addressed (ref:10510029)

The responsibility for collecting and maintaining task analysis and Training Needs Analysis data should be identified (ref:10510030)

The need for an HF style guide to ensure consistency of operation across all interfaces should be addressed. MOD HF style guides exist for certain types of system (ref:10510031)
