Human Factors, FlightDeck/Cockpit, Man-Machine-Interface, Control & Monitoring, awkward, fatigue


To ensure the human/pilots and machines work together effectively in the aviation system, the airframers and equipment supplier should be focused their attention on reducing the complexity of aircraft technology by putting forward explicitly the “aircraft design philosophy” as a primary an outline of the top-level operational and Human Factors (HF) design principles that will dictate the design of the FlightDeck / Cockpit or the modification of a system in the Flight Deck.   Most of the time the aircraft’s Flight Deck is equipped with Man-Machine-Interface (MMI) to operate the aircraft. The advent of touch screen type to simultaneously Control & Monitoring (C&M) has a positive implication, e.g. pilot or operator just see or watch in one certain area display. However, the repetitive eye movement along with hands to touch the display into the same display location tends to bring awkwardness. In addition, the repetition of tasks in the same location will be brought fatigue in long-term operational aircraft scenarios. To avoid the awkward & fatigue sourcing from those touch-screen control & display, it obviously needs to model the test of operational display C&M with respect to Human Digital Engineering Factor (HDEF).
