711 HPW - Human Systems Integration Directorate

 

The 711th Human Performance Wing Human Systems Integration Directorate (711 HPW/HP) headquartered at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, provides Human Systems Integration (HSI) capability to the United States Air Force. Major areas of emphasis include a human-centered approach to capability requirements definition and development planning, embedded HSI practitioners in MAJCOM requirements offices (A5), embedded practitioner support and reach-back support to System Program Offices, and expanded support to AF Medical Service (AFMS). 

 

711 HPW/HP Director

 
Col. Phillip PreenCol. Philip Preen is the Commander, Human Systems Integration Directorate (HP), 711th Human Performance Wing, Air Force Research Laboratory, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio. The Directorate provides Human Systems Integration (HSI) expertise for the Line of the Air Force (LAF) and the Air Force Medical System (AFMS).

About Us

The 711th Human Performance Wing Human Systems Integration Directorate (711 HPW/HP) headquartered at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio, provides Human Systems Integration (HSI) capability to the United States Air Force. Major areas of emphasis include a human-centered approach to capability requirements definition and development planning, embedded HSI practitioners in MAJCOM requirements offices (A5), embedded practitioner support and reach-back support to System Program Offices, and expanded support to AF Medical Service (AFMS). HSI facilitates the systematic integration of nine human-centered domains (Manpower, Personnel, Training, Human Factors Engineering, Survivability, Environment, Safety, Occupational Health, and Habitability) to optimize total system performance and decrease cost, and informs the life cycle decision making process with a human-centered focus.


VISION
Integrates human performance sustainment, optimization, and enhancement through the application of operational knowledge and evidence-based HSI.

MISSION
To optimize warfighter capability through a human-centric approach to system development, acquisition, and sustainment. 

ORGANIZATIONAL MISSION
Utilize a human-centric approach to capabilities requirements definition and analysis in system acquisition.

Provide HSI support to AFMS Acquisitions and Health Care Delivery.

Provide HSI expertise to system development, acquisition and sustainment professionals within the ISR, SOF, Agile Combat Support, Mobility and Fighter/Bomber communities.

HSI Resources

  Here is some information that may be helpful to individuals serving as HSI Points of Contact.

CLE 062: Human Systems Integration: Designed to provide a basic understanding of Human Systems Integration (HSI) as part of the DoD's Total Systems Engineering approach for optimizing system performance and minimizing total ownership costs.

Defense Acquisition Guidebook: Supports acquisition policy documents DoDD 5000.01 and DoDI 5000.02 by providing discretionary best practices for the acquisition workforce.

Organizational Structure

IMPLEMENTATION DIVISION (HPI) – The division advances human-centered design in the acquisition of weapons systems to maximize total system performance and reduce life cycle costs; facilitates human systems integration process implementation during weapons systems requirements development and acquisition across the Air Force enterprise areas of aeronautics, Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR), munitions, and space/missile; and consults with high performance teams, program managers, systems engineers, and integrated product teams to execute human systems integration.


ANALYSIS DIVISION (HPA) – The Analysis Division focuses primarily on medical and line HSI prior to establishment of a program office. HPA Medical Branch (HPAM) objective is to apply HSI to AFMS capabilities and systems in acquisitions and health care delivery. HPA Materiel Branch (HPAA) objective is to provide consultative support to early acquisition efforts/programs prior to Milestone B. This includes capability requirements planning, development planning and product support, Joint Capabilities Integration Development System (JCIDS) document reviews, and input to AF policy documents.

What is HSI?

 
Human Systems Integration (HSI) is a process to ensure systems are designed and developed that effectively and affordably integrate with human capabilities and limitations.

The HSI process considers :  
 
  • human factors engineering
  • manpower
  • personnel  
  •  
  • training
  • survivability
  • habitability 
  •  
  • environmental, safety, & occupational health (ESOH)   

  • These domains must be taken into account throughout system design, development, fielding, and sustainment.

    The Defense Acquisition University offers the following online courses at no cost for DoD employees. These courses provide pertinent information about the role of HSI in acquisition programs:
    • CLE 062, Human Systems Integration
    • SYS 169, Introduction to Human Systems Integration
    • ACQ 101, Fundamentals of Systems Acquisition Management
    • LOG 101, Acquisition Logistics Fundamentals
    • SYS 101, Fundamentals of Systems Planning, Research, Development, and Engineering
    The Naval Postgraduate School offers a four-course distance learning certificate program in HSI. Additional information about this program can be obtained at the Naval Postgraduate School Distance Learning link.
