Abstract : This report describes the functional specifications for the development of a human factors engineering (HFE) data retrieval system to be used by system acquisition managers, designers, and HFE specialists. The system is organized around the following requirements: system must be responsive to the needs of a variety of users, include data of the type presently available in MIL STD 1472C plus quantitative estimates of human performance, maintenance and logistics data, specifications and standards, and analytical and evaluational techniques, include data from operational Navy sources not presently found in any HFE data base, be formatted in three 'tracks,' with Track 1 consisting of abstracts of individual studies, Track 2 containing data from the same sources but in a highly synthesized form, and Track 3 containing all other ancillary information such as HFE specifications and standards.
