Abstract

Human Error Template (HET) is a checklist style approach to predict human errors in the cockpit for developing accident prevention strategies. It is applied to each bottom level task step in a hierarchical task analysis (HTA) of the task in question. This research applies the latest technique for human error prediction- Human Error Template to predict the potential design-induced human errors in the IDF during the landing phase of flight and provide a basis for improving software design and hardware equipment to enhance flight safety. In military operations emphasis is on the fulfillment of SOPs in an attempt to prevent incidents/accidents resulting from human factors. By the use of the scientific approach of HTA to evaluate current SOPs together with formal error analysis of the pilot's, interface design and procedures, the air force's combat effectiveness will be improved and a user-friendly cockpit interface can be developed.
