MIL-STD-1472F ii FOREWORD 1. This standard has been approved for use by all Departments and Agencies of the Department of Defense. 2. This standard establishes general human engineering criteria for design and development of military systems, equipment and facilities. Its purpose is to present human engineering design criteria, principles and practices to be applied in the design of systems, equipment and facilities so as to: a. Achieve required performance by operator, control and maintenance personnel. b. Minimize skill and personnel requirements and training time. c. Achieve required reliability of personnel-equipment combinations. d. Foster design standardization within and among systems. 3. This standard does not alter requirements for system development participation of human engineering specialists to interpret and implement these practices and to provide solutions to human engineering problems which arise and which are not specifically covered herein. 4. MIL-HDBK-759 is intended to serve as a companion document to this standard and should be consulted for data, preferred practices, and design guidelines, including design guidelines for variations of basic hardware configurations covered herein. * 5. Requirements herein are expressed in the International System of units (SI). As a convenience, the metric units are accompanied by their approximate customary system equivalents (in parentheses). Angular measure is expressed in degrees unless it is necessary to specify fractions of a degree where milliradians are used. 6. This revision has not expanded 5.13, Hazards and Safety, in any signficant way since the original intent of this subsection was to limit its coverage to what was most likely to be encountered during human engineering work and was moderately expanded only to accommodate requests by safety and health practitioners and review activities. 7. Subsection 5.14 is intended to provide only basic criteria on user-computer interface; therefore, this revision has not updated 5.14 other than to correct errors. Moreover, when going beyond fundamental criteria, the need for flexibility outweighs benefits that might be gained by expanding 5.14 that would limit software design. This flexibility is provided by handbooks and style guides, such as the DoD Human Computer Interface Style Guide (Volume 8 of the Department of Defense Technical Architecture Framework for Information Management or TAFIM). When a national standard becomes available, it will be considered as a cited replacement, in whole or part, for 5.14.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
