Abstract : This report contains 16 human-factors testing techniques contributed by a number of Air Force and contractor personnel. While limited in number, it covers a broad segment of the human-factors testing spectrum. For example, the techniques presented range from those used during the design and fabrication through those used in field and operational system testing. This catalog was developed as a prototype to determine its usefulness to human-factors personnel as a reference source for human-factors testing devices and techniques. If this prototype finds acceptance, a more comprehensive catalog may be developed. The comprehensive catalog would serve two purposes. First, it would present information about techniques that have not previously been published. Second, it would present in one source most of the techniques currently being used in human-factors testing.
