An Annotated Review of Selected Military and Government Sources of Human Factors Design Related Criteria
Pages 7

The purpose of this chapter is to transfer the human factor design related criteria developed by US government agencies to non-government personnel. While many readers are familiar with ISO (International Standards Organisation), ANSI (American National Standards Institute) and SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) standards, they are not familiar with design standards developed primarily by military agencies or agencies with a specific focus, such as the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) and NASA (National Aeronautics and Aerospace Administration). Readers seeking design criteria, principles and practices for use in the design and development of systems, equipment and facilities will find these standards useful. Please note that since we have focused on design-related criteria we did not include guidelines or regulations developed by agencies such as NIOSH (National Institute of Occupational Health and Safety) or OSHA (Occupational Health and Safety Agency).
