This report documents the conduct and associated results of a Mission, Function, Task Analysis (MFTA) for the CC130 Hercules aircraft technician. The MFTA was conducted in order to assess operator performance in extreme environmental conditions, and specifically focused on the impact of high temperature environments on error rates. To categorize maintenance technician tasks, a literature review of existing maintenance documentation was performed. Additional research was conducted to assess the existing occupational, safety and health guidelines for operations in high temperature environments. A function and task analysis was then conducted with CC130 Subject Matter Experts to populate a task database with timing and workload data. The results of the MFTA indicate that while no formal procedures exist for operations within extreme climactic conditions, the maintenance community has developed a set of informal guidelines to minimize the impact of thermal strain on operator error. Additional effort should also be conducted to determine the impact of NBCD conditions on operator performance by integrated the task data from the current analysis within human performance modelling techniques.
