Abstract : The Coast Guard has identified a need to improve Human System Integration (HSI) in the planning, design, and development of new system acquisitions. A previous effort, "U.S. Coast Guard Human Systems Integration Program Requirements Document," revealed that HSI principles are not consistently applied throughout the acquisition process, and that a formal HSI program would ensure that human related issues are addressed during new system acquisitions. This report provides a recommended "Process Model" for integrating the various elements of HSI (i.e., Manpower, Personnel, Training, Human Factors Engineering, and Safety/Health Hazards) into all new Coast Guard hardware acquisitions, including ships, aircraft, and all equipment/systems/subsystems fielded through the acquisition program. An evaluation was conducted to assess the strengths and weaknesses of existing HSI programs and determine whether elements of existing programs could be used in the Coast Guard environment. Based on this review, a process model was developed to integrate HSI into the Coast Guard acquisition process.
