Under supervision, defines and validates human factors requirements during the design process, from concept definition through detailed design, to ensure human centered design and optimum usability in the operation, maintainability, and/or manufacturing of aircraft systems.
Principal Duties and Responsibilities:
1. Develops structured test plans and performs 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 human factors requirement definition.
2. Provides analysis of detailed design concepts to functional teams through the use of modeling techniques for reach and force requirements for a range of individuals that apply from the 5th percentile to the 99th percentile of a targeted population.
3. Attends multi-disciplinary review meetings as needed to clarify analysis goals. Supports specific project milestones that are integrated in the overall group product plan and schedule.
4. Creates a flight test report, engineering report and/or memos for each analysis and evaluation performed.
5. Supports pilot workload assessments through measurement techniques such as rating scales, questionnaires, and flight technical error analysis.
6. Gathers data used to provide estimates of procedural human error using task analysis and human error analysis methods.
Education and Experience Requirements:
Bachelors degree in engineering, a related curriculum, or equivalent combination of education and experience sufficient to successfully perform the essential functions of the job. See Other Requirements in Job Description. 18 months related engineering experience with Bachelors degree. Experience credit will be considered for related advance degrees limited to 2 years for Masters Degree and 4 years for PhD in fields applicable to this job position.
