Human Systems Integration (HSI) is the process taken to integrate human considerations within a system. This discipline seeks to place human requirements on the same level as other system elements, such as hardware and software to better facilitate a “total system” approach. This paper examines the developments in human factors, in addition to a review of current literature, and the application of HSI in government programs. A methodology is proposed that will enable a user to elicit, identify, and integrate specific requirements of the HSI military standard into an explicit application. A case study is detailed to provide insight to the significance of human requirements along with the benefits that can be obtained by their application.
