To ensure the operability of military systems, the UK Ministry of Defence has established a well-defined process of integrating Human Factors into all stages of procurement, from the Concept, Assessment and Demonstration phases, through to Manufacture, In-service and Disposal.
Human Factors Integration requires not just expert knowledge and experience but also a clear, comprehensive and well-managed plan. To ensure complete coverage, there are seven HFI 'domains': Manpower, Personnel, Training, Human Factors Engineering, System Safety, Health Hazards and finally Social and Organisational.
