SC-233 - Addressing Human Factors/Pilot Interface Issues for Avionics, established, December 16, 2014, is working to identify a recommended process for evaluating the human factors/pilot interface aspects of avionics as well as to document some prevalent human factors issues that may aid the early identification and resolution of these issues as part of the design and evaluation process. Industry input would be gathered for designs of systems, features, and functions that are "best practices" and have been previously approved, and can be publicly shared (non-proprietary) to facilitate future approvals and streamline the certification process. The intent is to raise the level of awareness about human factors to facilitate the identification and resolution of human factors issues by the individuals who are responsible for design and evaluation of avionics, specifically FAA Flight Test Pilots, Engineers and Human Factors Specialists within the FAA Aircraft Certification Offices as part of their review and approval process.
