Research leading to the implementation of computer software techniques for handling human factors task data generated in support of aerospace system development programs is discussed. Techniques being explored in this research program are based on the assumption that a user-oriented computerized data system will help draw human factors specialists closer to needed data. The application of such a system will reduce the problem of data accessibility and allow more effective use of data in the system engineering process. Preliminary research leading to proposed data handling techniques is discussed. A computerized data handling system to store, retrieve, and process human factors task data is initially implemented through a pilot study. A discussion of the pilot study specification is followed by a presentation of the design specification for a computerized experimental system. The experimental system, referred to as the pilot study experimental system, provides the primary means for demonstrating and evaluating the research results against the original research goals. Computer software descriptions are presented for implementing the pilot study experimental system in a user-oriented environment in terms of information needs of human factors specialists.
