A METHODOLOGY FOR CONDUCTING HUMAN FACTORS EVALUATIONS OF VEHICLES IN OPERATIONAL FIELD TESTS
The purpose was to develop a standardized methodology for use in conducting human factors evaluations of trucks and similar vehicles within the context of operational field tests. The focus is on the assessment of users' (drivers') judgments and allows for differential weighting of individual human factors characteristics. The key to the methodology is the Human Factors Vehicular Evaluation Instrument, which is an interview form containing 85 human factors characteristics relevant to vehicle design and operation. Data are presented from the initial utilization of the methodology in an operational field test. (Author)
