Standard Practice for Habitability

2018-08-14
WIP
SAE1007
The Habitability standard practice identifies the recommended approach for conducting Habitability activities in support of system acquisition programs. This standard covers all aspects of the physical environment that people inhabit, for work, or other purpose. It includes adequate space and environmental/temperature controls and, if appropriate, requirements for personnel services (e.g., medical, dental and mess) and living conditions (e.g., berthing and personal hygiene) that have a direct impact on meeting or sustaining system performance/effectiveness or that have such an adverse impact on safety, health, comfort, quality of life and morale that recruitment or retention is degraded. It includes analysis, modeling and simulation, design, and verification of Habitability requirements and processes.

2018-08-14
WIP
SAE1009
The Design for Maintainer (DFM) standard identifies the recommended approach for conducting Design for Maintainability activities in support of system acquisition programs. The standard identifies general requirements and processes of a successful DFM program during concept and design development to ensure the lowest possible ownership costs. This standard provides specific detailed contractor requirements for DFM activities inclusive of the Human Engineering domain. The standard is consistent with MIL-STD-46855 and SAE 6906 Human Systems Integration. And DFM standard practices support performance of activities in coordination with other associated disciplines such as maintainability, supportability, and integrated logistics.

Standard Practice for Personnel

2018-08-14
WIP
SAE1006
The Personnel standard practice identifies the recommended approach for conducting Personnel activities in support of system acquisition programs. This standard covers Personnel processes throughout system conceptualization, design, development, verification, production, use and disposal. Personnel addresses skills, grades, aptitudes, physical attributes and education and training backgrounds of military and civilian personnel required to operate, maintain, train and support the system equipment and associated support equipment and facilities in its operational environment. It includes analysis, modeling and simulation, design support and verification of Personnel estimates and requirements.

Practical Process for Determining Explainable, Rational Distortion Levels Providing Adequate IPP

2011-12-05
Translating service information into multiple human natural languages is a major expense for multinational corporations. Indeed corporations spend significant amounts to reduce their translation expense by managing the reuse text and its translation. The new frontier in reducing translation expense is translation avoidance, eliminating text through using illustrations and animations to communicate. Presenter Arnold Taube

Eurocae WG-72 Activities

2012-03-16
The presentation provides an overview about the activities of Eurocae Working Group 72 (WG-72) starting with a brief synopsis of the context which suggested why such a committee should be established in 2006. It then goes into further detail about the drivers for the work of the committee, which call for the products to be delivered. It addresses some of the challenges with respect to its users. It points out that one of the lessons the committee learned was importance of the focus on the users, such that the products provide their maximum utility. Hence, the users should better be among the participants to achieve this objective. Other industries have dealt with the subject of Information System (or Cyber-Physical) Security long before this industry was forced to consider it. Consequently there are many industry standards and national or international norms, which may help to develop what is deemed needed for Civil Aviation.

Spotlight on Design Insight: Fuel Efficiency: Fuel Economy Testing

2015-05-07
“Spotlight on Design: Insight” features an in-depth look at the latest technology breakthroughs impacting mobility. Viewers are virtually taken to labs and research centers to learn how design engineers are enhancing product performance/reliability, reducing cost, improving quality, safety or environmental impact, and achieving regulatory compliance. As global concerns about the negative consequences of greenhouse gases on the environment increase, regulatory agencies around the world are taking serious steps to address the issue of tailpipe emissions In the episode “Fuel Efficiency: Fuel Economy Testing” (12:05), engineers at the EPA’s National Vehicle and Fuel Emissions Laboratory demonstrate how different vehicles are tested for emissions, and AVL’s technical team shows how accurate tailpipe emissions can be measured and reported.

Ice Crystal and Mixed Phase Icing Tunnel Testing of Air Data Probes

2018-04-16
WIP
AIR6974
This document provides information on current practices for testing air data probes to 14 CFR Part 33 Appendix D ice crystal and mixed phase icing conditions. This AIR is primarily concerned with techniques for measuring the flow and icing environment in the test facility. While the focus of this report is the testing of air data probes, techniques described may be applicable to Appendix D tests of other aerospace equipment as well.

Oxygen considerations for flight into high elevation airports

2015-11-30
WIP
ARP6527
The scope of this document is to provide guidance concerning the use of oxygen when flying into and out of high elevation airports. Normally for aircraft operations that fly at high altitude, oxygen requirements involving a decompression are generally easy to understand and follow because of the increased delta between cabin and ambient pressures. This document is intended to address a transition zone where cabin and ambient pressures are closely the same and oxygen usage can be compounded by physiologic subjectivity that often accompanies hypoxia. This transition zone is further diluted by regulations which are based not on science but rather sociological mores often not supported by empirical science. An example of this is reflected by differential regulatory requirements between CFR’s 91, 121 and 135. Operators who fly into these high altitude airports will undoubtedly be required to address the inherent threats and errors associated with this transition zone.
