Human Performance/Human Effectiveness is an essential Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) S&T capability that will operate in a greater “breadth” mode. This Working Group studied the Human Performance Modelling Capability (HPMC) within IBPS to produce a plan for evolving the current capability into a future capability making greater use of collaboration with the external S&T community (Allies, academia, and industry). With individual study and group sessions, and using explicit questions and free thought drawing on resident knowledge, the capability in Human Performance Modelling (HPM) in the external S&T community was determined to be developed enough to engage for collaboration. Potential partners may be attracted to collaborate with us because of, among other things, access to unique human performance data and facilities, but may be hesitant, for example, due to administrative bureaucracy and not-fully-developed expertise in DRDC scientists. The HPMC can better position itself for engaging potential collaborators by identifying the external HPM experts, learning about collaboration best practices, discovering what incentives would interest collaborators, and supporting DRDC S&T workers with guidance on collaborative procedures and with developing recognized expertise.
