Importance of Ergonomics

- High quality and intuitive design
- Provides the benefits of:
1. Short learning curves
2. Safer operation
3. Consistency in designs

12

Basic Principles of Ergonomics (Part 1)

- Understand the environment in which we use our design

13

Identifications (Part 2)

- Human strengths
- Capabilities
- Limitations
- Normal and unexpected behavior
- Controls are simple to use
- Layout design should intuitive

Aircraft Control Ergonomics

- Early aircraft controls required specific training on each aircraft for pilots
- WW2 precipitated a rapid development of ergonomic design of aircraft cockpits
- Aircrew performance improved simply through consideration to the design of the crew-aircraft interface
