The generation, use, and flow of human factors task data in aerospace system design and development are described. The data are characterized by a process of continual transformation in content and form of presentation occurring throughout the iterative cycles of system development. The networks within which data flow are shown to be extensive in size, pervasive in nature, and complex in their dynamic relationships. These dynamic processes are illustrated in flow diagrams showing the relationships of human factors task data and their input/output elements in functional analysis for planning, specifications, task analysis, human engineering, reliability, maintainability, qualitative and quantitative personnel requirements information, training equipment planning information, and maintenance manuals.
