The HILAS project will develop a model of good practice for the integration of human factors across the life-cycle of aviation systems. The project contains four parallel strands of work: the integration and management of human factors knowledge; the fli ght operations environment and performance; the evaluation of new flight deck technologies, and the monitoring and assessment of maintenance operations. The Knowledge Integration strand will develop a knowledge management system linking all the strands o f the project, incorporating the project's tools and methods and the requirements for their effective use. It will facilitate the use of that knowledge by users inside and outside the project, and examine how to transform operational knowledge to stimul ate new design ideas. It will evaluate how well the project manages its knowledge in order to create innovation possibilities An integrated system for flight operations process improvement and performance management will be developed using cockpit integr ation technology. This will demonstrate the impact of flight operations process redesign on performance improvement and lead to a standardised European model for flight operations performance monitoring The evaluation of new flight deck technologies wil l address new and emerging technologies, such as synthetic vision, head-mounted displays and multi-modal dialogue systems. The human factors of these technologies will be evaluated in an integrated simulation rig. This will provide a comprehensive evalua tion platform of human factors tools and methods. The monitoring and improvement of maintenance operations will be addressed by an integrated set of tools and methods for managing human factors across the maintenance lifecycle from design to operations. T he pilot implementation of this human factors management system will be evaluated to produce a standardised assessment of safety and quality in maintenance systems and operations.
