Abstract : The purpose of PSS (Personnel subsystem) development is to provide the performance required of personnel in the system. The PSS developer must satisfy the system requirements for human performance and insure that the system is compatible with man's capabilities and limitations. The objective is to assure the availability of qualified military personnel concurrent with the availability of system hardware to the user. PSS processes and products support human performance for the system and must be evaluated in terms of their contribution to reliable and efficient human performance. Some of the areas of consideration are: the inter-relationship of functions performed by system people and system hardware, human engineering, personnel requirements, training and training equipment, life support, and test and evaluation.
