As part of an ongoing program to develop a Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) system for human factors engineers, a Human Performance Expert System, Human, was designed. The system contains a taxonomy of independent variables which affect human performance. This taxonomy was developed in a three-step process: (1) review existing taxonomies; (2) add independent variables used in Human; and (3) remove redundancy and ambiguity. This process and the resultant taxonomy are described in this paper.
