Mobile Apps for HSI

The Mobile Apps for HSI tool domain focuses on the development of mobile tools for the analysis and collection of data for the improvement of human and system performance. Mobile apps developed by HRED include the Job Assessment Software System (JASS), Military Anthropometry Resource Companion (MARC), and Mobile Field Data Collection App (also referred to as the Research, Development, Test & Evaluation Tool, RDTET). HRED has also conducted case studies in manual to automated process operations improvement, where the Preventive Maintenance, Checks and Services Plus (PMCS+) and Services Plus (Services+) tools were developed to modernize vehicle maintenance and service processes.
