Human Systems Integration

...and now for another Human Factors Minute! Human Systems Integration (HSI) is a robust process by which practitioners design and develop systems that effectively integrate human capabilities and limitations. HSI is a multidisciplinary field of study composed of several basic areas: Human Factors Engineering, System Safety, Health Hazards, Personnel Survivability, Manpower,Personnel,Training,Habitability. HSI includes humans, in their different roles in the system such as acting as an operator, maintainer, trainer, or designer Systems including hardware, software and acquisition processes and the integration of all of these elements to optimize the performance and safety of the system as a whole. HSI should be included as an integral part of a total system approach to the development and acquisition human machine interfaces. The Defense Acquisition Guidebook states that a, “total system includes the prime mission equipment, the people who operate, maintain, and support the system; As well as the training and training devices that support operations and infrastructure”. The principle goal of HSI is to ensure a safe and effective relationship between the human and the system that meets the mission. This has been another Human Factors Minute!

Nick Roome

Nick is currently a Senior UX Researcher at Turvo in the Pacific Northwest, focused on developing innovative solutions and optimizing human performance for SaaS based supply chain logistics programs. Alongside colleague and friends, Blake Arnsdorff and Barry Kirby, Nick hosts and produces Human Factors Cast, a weekly podcast that investigates the sciences of human factors, psychology, engineering, biomechanics, industrial design, physiology and anthropometry and how it affects our interaction with technology. Nick’s other areas of interest include, but are not limited to virtual, augmented, and mixed reality, systems engineering, and artificially intelligent systems.

Nick Started Human Factors Cast in early 2016 as a side-project. He believed that the way Human Factors concepts were being communicated is broken and saw a way to fix it. After getting initial traction, Nick moved to work on the Human Factors Cast Digital Media Lab and began assembling a multi-disciplinary team to test out new concepts in Human Factors communication.
