ISO 8468 Ships and marine technology -- Ship's bridge layout and associated equipment -- Requirements and guidelines

The purpose of ISO 8468:2007 is to assist the operator(s) and pilot by providing a workplace that is conducive to safe and effective operation. It also aims to specify bridge requirements, which will secure safe and efficient operation of the ship berth-to-berth regardless of the watchkeeping arrangement in place at a particular time. ISO 8468:2007 should be used in support of the aims in SOLAS Chapter V Regulation 15. Requirements and guidance on the human element aspects of the bridge system (e.g. training, procedures) are not given.

Life cycle ergonomics (LCETM) in designing the bridge of a pilot vessel

Intergo created the functional design of a bridge of a pilot vessel by applying the Life Cycle Ergonomics method (LCE™). LCE™ is a cost effective human-centred approach in the design phase, integrating the needs of all different users in every life cycle phase.

MARINE GUIDANCE NOTE MGN 365 (M) Human Element Assessment Tool

To maximize the effectiveness of the implementation of the International Safety Management (ISM) Code, those responsible for the Code should have the capability to manage the varied and complex nature of human element issues. They should be able to assess human element safety management capability effectively, including the various human and organizational factors involved, and identify measures to improve that capability. HEAT has been developed to assist in this assessment.

Methods to support human-centred design

This paper notes the importance of usable systems and promotes the process of humancentred design as a way to achieve them. Adopting the framework of ISO 13407, each of the main processes in the human-centred design cycle is considered in turn along with a set of usability methods to support it. These methods are brie#y described with references to further information. Each set of methods is also presented in a table format to enable the reader to compare and select them for di!erent design situations.

This standard establishes general human engineering criteria for design and development of military systems, equipment, and facilities. The purpose of this standard is to present human engineering design criteria, principles, and practices to be applied in the design of systems, equipment, and facilities so as to: a. Achieve required performance by operator, control, and maintenance personnel. b. Achieve required manpower readiness for system performance. c. Achieve required reliability of personnel-equipment combinations. d. Foster design standardization within and among systems.
