Abstract
In June 1994, the Directorate of Engineering and Maintenance Planning and Standardization in the Canadian Department of Defence (DND) announced the intention of moving to commercial specifications and standards. In response, DCIEM contracted out a study to identify commercial equivalents to US MIL-STD-1472D and other military HCI specifications. The study looked closely at three areas in which MIL-STD-1472 might be used: the design of crew work-space; the design of human: computer inference, and the design of clothing and personal equipment. No commercial standard was found to US MIL-STD-1472 except the standard ASTM F1116, which is almost identical. The seven next most "highly applicable" documents taken together would not adequately cover the range of topics now covered in MIL-STD-1472. The standard ANSI/HFS100 on office ergonomics was found to be a better standard than MIL-STD-1472 for office work spaces. TRUNCATED
