Everyone has own idea and opinion of what exactly human factors are. The reason for that is molding of the everyone's perspective with the particular field. Subject field can be design or experimental research, cognitive theory or acquisition, biology, anthropology or any other. Nowadays there is a driving demand for the naval specialists to focus on such important aspect as human factor.
Regretfully, the number of marine accidents continues to increase with the main cause being human error. It can be designer's or operator's error. The situation is worsened because of the decreasing manning of the vessels, lack of duly experienced operators, and operations carried out in high seas; you should also take into account the fatigue. One of the potential solutions could be automation; however the fact is that flawed automation system contribute to the maritime accidents.
The present publication is devoted to the human factors for the design and operation of the naval marine vehicles. The author has addressed the main aspects involved, including types of the marine vehicles, their functions and associated limitations and solutions, human stressors, areas of concern, enhancement of the human factors, HMI, standing for the human-machine interface, important design considerations and future trends.
