Reducing Risk in System Design Through Human-Systems Integration

Our goal is to provide examples that demonstrate the risk reduction benefits of human-systems integration (HSI), a crucial part of successful and efficient system design. It supplements Booher and Minninger’s 2003 work by providing parallel examples in nonmilitary domains for a subset of their HSI success factors, and explaining how risk was or could have been avoided, transferred, assumed, or mitigated through the use of HSI. Because benefits of HSI include reducing costs and improving safety, acceptance, and performance, those in any work domain should consider whether HSI should have a larger role in their system design process.
