A better world through a systems approach

Human Systems Integration Working Group

Mission & Objectives

Human Systems Integration: interdisciplinary technical and management processes for integrating human considerations within and across all system elements; an essential enabler to systems engineering practice.

To facilitate embedding Human Systems Integration within Systems Engineering, promoting the benefit of placing the proper focus on the role of people in the development and operation of systems. Our vision is to see Human Systems Integration embedded in Systems Engineering practices, leading to the efficient delivery of effective systems.


Chair: Guy Andre Boy, CentraleSupélec (Paris Saclay University), ESTIA Institute of Technology, and Air & Space Academy

Co-Chair: Ajoy Muralhidar, Naval Surface Warfare Center - Dahlgren DIvision
