dc.description.abstract Proposes that the methods used in aircraft cockpit design are entirely applicable to the design of workstations in general industry. However, to be effective, the application of ergonomic knowledge must take place within the framework of the systems approach. This fact is not emphasised, and rarely even mentioned, in publications on ergonomics. An ergonomic design decision cannot be made in isolation. Only through a systematic approach to the application of ergonomic design methods can the human operator be properly integrated within a man machine system. The science of ergonomics has many facets, these being physical, physiological and psychological in nature. The piecemeal and disorganised application of ergonomic knowledge to cockpit design could have resulted in, at best, suboptimal designs. But fortunately the aeronautical industry had, of necessity, developed a formal and systematic procedure for the design of the aircraft as a "total system." This procedure consists of a logical series of activities which transform a requirement into appropriate hardware. en
