A better world through a systems approach

Human Systems Integration Working Group

Mission & Objectives


Human Systems Integration (HSI) is the transcultural and transdisciplinary technical and management process used to ensure that the human elements of a system are appropriately addressed and integrated within the wider systems engineering lifecycle and management approach to a project. HSI involves analyzing, designing and evaluating technological, organizational and human systems.


Our vision is 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, efficient delivery and and operations of effective systems.
