Aligning Human-System Integration and Systems Engineering 2004-21-0021
One challenge facing automotive product development teams is the inclusion of the Human System Integration (HSI) community – consisting of human factors professionals, graphic and industrial designers, rapid prototyping software engineers, electronic hardware engineers, and systems engineers – in the Product Development Process (PDP). In order to achieve this integration, Visteon looked to the methods of systems engineering currently employed throughout the PDP. Overlaying the HSI process with an accepted systems engineering process description known as the N2 (N-squared) chart resulted in the outlining of expected inputs to the HSI process team, definitions of processes undertaken by the team, and expected outputs of those processes.
