The Reliable Human-Machine System Developer (REHMS-D) is a major advance in system and reliability engineering that has broad application. By means of a new human reliability model and a six-stage system engineering process, the REHMS-D decision support approach guides the designer through the synthesis of system or process human functions in a manner that results in a system or process that meets the assigned reliability requirements. REHMS-D complements the traditional hardware design process for reliability by providing a means for designing human functions for reliability. Experience with manufacturing process application has led to the conclusion that REHMS-D is valuable in addressing a major competitiveness concern of US Industry-improving manufacturing processes. Also, it is concluded that REHMS-D also has value in system and maintenance design
