This SAE Systems Management Standard specifies the Habitability processes throughout planning, design, development, test, production, use and disposal of a system. Depending on contract phase and/or complexity of the program, tailoring of this standard may be applied. Appendix C provides guidance on tailoring standard requirements to fit the various DoD acquisition pathways. The primary goals of a contractor Habitability program include:
  • Ensuring that the system design complies with the customer Habitability requirements and that discrepancies are reported to management and the customer.
  • Identifying, coordinating, tracking, prioritizing, and resolving Habitability risks and issues and ensuring that they are:
    1. Reflected in the contractor proposal, budgets, and plans.
    2. Raised at design, management, and program reviews.
    3. Debated in working group meetings.
    4. Coordinated with Training, logistics, and the other HSI disciplines.
    5. Included appropriately in documentation and deliverable data items.
  • Ensuring that Habitability requirements are applied to all personnel environments, including operators, maintainers, trainers, and support personnnel.
  • Identifying and pursuing opportunities to reduce Habitability costs.
  • Ensuring that Habitability considerations are addressed in analyses, design decisions, trade-offs, and design changes (e.g., Engineering Change Proposals (ECP)).
  • Conducting Habitability analysis activities and supporting human factors analyses (e.g., workload analysis) and other HSI domain analyses to provide evidence to support design decisions and trade-offs and to coordinate shared data.
  • Ensuring that Habitability analyses, results and recommendations are timely, technically competent/complete, and included in design decisions, tradeoffs, and changes.
  • Ensuring that environments experienced by subjects in experiments, simulations, tests, evaluations, and demonstrations are consistent with the customer’s Habitability requirements and meet the U.S. Government and DoD policies for protecton of human subjects.
  • Ensuring that Habitability issues discovered in test, evaluation, demonstration, Operational Test and Evaluation (OT&E), and operations are resolved in a technically competent/complete and timely manner.
