HSI Organizations

There are numerous organizations that employ an HSI approach to the development of their assets and systems. The list below contains a sampling of those organizations.

Board on Human Systems Integration (BOHSI)
The Board on Human-Systems Integration has a broad mandate that includes providing new perspectives on theoretical and methodological issues concerning the relationship of individuals and organizations to technology and the environment; identifying critical issues in the design, test, evaluation, and use of new human-centered technologies; and advising sponsors on the research needed to expand the scientific and technical bases for designing technology to support the needs of its users. http://sites.nationalacademies.org/DBASSE/BOHSI/index.htm

Federal Aviation Administration
The FAA's Human Factors Division develops and assures implementation of human factors policies, regulations, programs, and procedures which promote the safety and productivity of the national airspace system. http://www.hf.faa.gov/

Human Factors and Ergonomics Society
The Society's mission is to promote the discovery and exchange of knowledge concerning the characteristics of human beings that are applicable to the design of systems and devices of all kinds. The Society furthers serious consideration of knowledge about the assignment of appropriate functions for humans and machines, whether people serve as operators, maintainers, or users in the system. https://www.hfes.org/web/Default.aspx

The International System Safety Society
Advance the system safety discipline by creating an international, interdependent network of system safety professionals dedicated to the continuous improvement of the art, sciences and technology needed to provide the best total system safety solutions. Be the recognized international leader in the system safety discipline. http://www.system-safety.org/

NASA Ames Research Center Human Factors Site
The Human Systems Integration Division advances human-centered design and operations of complex aerospace systems through analysis, experimentation, and modeling of human performance and human-automation interaction to make dramatic improvements in safety, efficiency, and mission success. It also offers a human factors 101 training course. http://humanfactors.arc.nasa.gov/

Naval Sea Systems Command

NAVSEA designs, builds, delivers, and maintains ships and systems for the U.S. Navy. http://www.navsea.navy.mil/
