USAF HSI Handbook (2009)

This Handbook is intended to provide the practitioner with an introduction to HSI and an improved understanding of why HSI is important. This includes consideration of the relationship between HSI and the Systems Acquisition Process, emphasizing the importance of addressing HSI early in system design and acquisition. Early consideration of HSI is necessary in order to maximize system performance benefits and reap maximum return on investment, resulting in minimal redesigns required later in the acquisition process. This Handbook addresses the integration of the HSI domains of human factors, manpower, personnel, training, environment, safety, occupational health, survivability, and habitability such that interdependencies can be organized and influenced and optimal design can be achieved.
