A systems engineering view of the human in space
Author and Affiliation:
Anderson, John L.(NASA Office of Aeronautics and Space Technology, Washington, DC, United States)
Abstract: A model of the human as an 'engineered' system provides a starting point for determining human requirements and performance on an equivalent basis with technological systems. The human as an engineered system with performance requirements is defined to consist of four subsystems: cognitive, psychological, biomechanical, and biomedical. It is suggested that the treatment of the psychological subsystem as one that modulates the efficiency and quality of human performance offers a particular approach for examining and characterizing psychological effects.
