This paper reviews the impact of Computer Aided Design (CAD) on aviation safety. In particular the paper looks at how CAD has incorporated Human Factors Principles, that is to say an appreciation of the kind of people who will be using the technology, into the design making process.
From the Paper:"There can be little question that few occupations demand more of their practitioners than do the various branches of aviation. To begin with, any aircraft - be it a jetliner, a fighter jet, or even a small private airplane - is an extremely sophisticated piece of machinery. More specifically, they travel at high rates of speed, they can be (at least in the case of commercial aircraft) very unwieldy and cumbersome and their malfunction and/or mistreatment can result in almost certain death; quite simply, they are not items with which to be trifled. Adding to the dangers posed by these aircraft is the fact that their pilots - at least in military and/or commercial contexts - are expected to do more, and to do it more quickly, than ever before."
