Human Systems Integration(HSI): Capturing the Human Element in Technology Development

NASA will soon be rolling out the NASA Human Systems Integration Handbook. Moreover, the updated NASA Procedural Requirements document 7120.5(NASA Space Flight Program and Project Management Requirements) soon to be released summer of 2021 will make implementing HSI mandatory. This presentation will provide  a high-level awareness of the Human Systems Integration(HSI) process and an introduction to the the complement of technology readiness level(TRL) called Human Readiness Level to manage and maximizing system performance.
