Abstract : This manual is for the HARDMAN III module MAN-SEVAL (manpower-based system evaluation aid). The MAN-SEVAL manual is divided into nine sections: introduction, installing MAN-SEVAL, Getting Around in MAN-SEVAL, Overview of Steps in MAN-SEVAL, MAN-SEVAL Tutorial, Recommended Strategy for Using MAN-SEVAL, Help System and Utilities, Glossary, and index. The manual also has four appendices: Error Messages, Description of HARDMAN III Tools, User Comments, and Flow Diagram of MAN-SEVAL Steps. MAN-SEVAL is a tool to evaluate contractor's designs very early in the weapon system acquisition process. MAN-SEVAL can help determine whether a design is likely to meet the system performance requirements with the maintenance and operator crew sizes that will be available to operate and maintain the system once it is fielded. MAN-SEVAL is intended to be used iteratively. As more data become available during design phase, the MAN-SEVAL data can be updated to refine the performance predictions that are generated by the tool
