Abstract [en]

Aircraft maintenance technicians work in a situation where the implementation and use of new technology is uncommon. This is so to reduce the risk for errors considered to be a result of design errors, of the system or tools used. Earlier studies have shown that more advanced equipment, such as, tablets, Personal Digital Assistants, etc. can be used to help reduce the number of manuals, amounts of paperwork, track actions better, and reduce the number of steps in the work process. To take this process a step further was the ISO 9241:210 standard followed, 10 technicians were interviewed, 6 separate observations were conducted, and the technicians were consulted in development of a design requirements for a headset to see in what way a aircraft maintenance technician daily maintenance operations can be improved. The resulted requirements were, a headset should be placed around the head over the forehead for a steady fit during the varied working positions of the aircraft technicians, it is to be made of lightweight and smooth fabric, which features elasticity and comfort for the skin, adaptability for different headsizes, the construction is made all in one piece to be simple yet robust to handle, the headset is to be placed/fit firmly onto the head during a working day, providing ability to access data and information effortlessly through the device which operates with augmented reality technology, an interactive way of handling data and information, information is to be visualized, and the information needed in the daily work is to be gathered and easily accessed in one place, which includes the channels for communication.
