Abstract
Designing clothing and equipment for the military requires extending the engineering concepts of "Systems integration and sub-system compatibility" to include the user. The aim is to match system demands to human capabilities and limitations, and to human variability. Good operability is "invisible" in the same way that good structural analysis or good materials analysis is not always readily apparent: the only evidence is that the system works satisfactorily and does not fail.
