SOME ERGONOMIC ASPECTS OF COCKPIT PANEL DESIGN FOR AIRLINE AIRCRAFT

Whether designing a new panel, or evaluating one that has already been put together, a systematic and thorough human factor approach will pay off. The purpose of this paper is to provide general guidelines for this ergonomic exercise. It is not intended here to go into wider aspects of panel design such as instrument layout and design, or electrical techniques employed in panel construction. Ergonomic aspects of panel maintenance, though important, are also outside the scope of this short paper.
