Abstract
The DCIEM Human Factors Engineering Guide (HFE Guide) is an hypertest version of US MIL-STD-1472 and the US Army Human Factors Engineering Test and evaluation guide (US TOP 1-2-610). The original version of the HFE Guide had several limitations; some information was out of date; the needs of users of the Guide had not been fully identified during the development; and the guide features did not fully exploit the opportunities presented by Hypertext. In this project a panel of potential users of the HFE Guide was established and used to test and evaluate improvements to the guide. Features available in other hypertest systems were evaluated, and improved features developed for the HFE Guide. These features included a table of contents based on MIL-STD-1472, a standard 'navigation bar' menu feature, for use throughout the guide, and a revised breakdown of the MIL-STD-1472 text.
