Human Resources as Engineering Design Criteria.
Askren, William B.
The report summarizes the results of a number of studies which have been performed in an attempt to develop a technology for using human resources data as criteria in engineering design studies. Eight investigations conducted during the period 1966-1975 are briefly described. The results of the eight studies are integrated around six topics of: feasibility and practicality of using human resources data as criteria in engineering design, methods for using the data in design studies, effect on the system of using the data as design criteria, types of human resources data most relevant for use as design criteria, methods for generating human resources data for use in design studies, and nature of the engineering design process. A 15-item bibliography is appended. (Author/BP)
