to the Gamification and Human Factors Engineering Seminar sponsored by
Monday the 11th of February 2019
from 6pm to 9:00pm*, the 14th Savannah Science Seminar**
Presentation will focus on Gamification and Human Factors Engineering in Aviation.
Your Gulfstream presenters, Dale Colter, Bob Farrell, Susan Taylor , Alex Rummel, Coleen Nilson, Vincent Foley, Mark Carnes, Whitney Holt, Walter Dumas and SSS Board Members/program facilitators Jim Goodlett and Jim
Gallagher will be your hosts at Gulfstream, RDC IV Auditorium*** off Crossroads Parkway.
NOTE that this seminar starts an hour earlier than normal so please
be on time as there is only ONE scheduled escort from the front lobby of RDC IV to the auditorium. After such time, no one else will be admitted.
This is a student only seminar due to security restrictions at Gulfstream's
plant site. Unfortunately, no parents/guardians will be allowed

property. Safety glasses are also required and will be provided
by Gulfstream. A reminder that no open toe shoes are allowed on
Among a vast array of information you will be getting, the following
is a brief outline to the presentations:
· What is Human Factors?
· Behavioral Economics
· Gamification in Product Design
· Human Factors Engineering in Aviation

Bob Farrell is currently the Manager of the Integration Test Facility
(ITF) at Gulfstream. The ITF provides
an engineering environment to develop next generation systems as
well as validate current design integration. We have two fixed-based
simulators that provide pilot-in-the-loop and hardware-in-the-loop
dynamic test capabilities. Bob has 15 years avionics development
experience while working at both Honeywell
at Gulfstream, Bob supported the
GIV-SP Avionics upgrade, GV Flight Test, PlaneView Avionics upgrade
for the GV-SP & GIVX. During a three-year contract with Honeywell
in the Air Transport Division, he supported Flight Management System
development. Bob holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical Engineering
from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
and is an 11-year member of the Institute
of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
Gallagher is a Program Director responsible for the in-service fleet
of Gulfstream aircraft. In his
Entry Into Service role, Jim supports in-service fleet issues, working
design, quality and operational issues for the in-service Gulfstream
fleet. Jim holds a Bachelor Degree in Aeronautcal Engineering from
University of Manchester;
Masters Degree in Mechanical Engineering from Oklahoma
State and an MBA from Georgia
Southern University and is a 25 year member of American
Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics.
Susan Taylor is the Staff Scientist for Human Factors Engineering at Gulfstream Aerospace, with technical oversight of human factors for all aircraft programs. Ms. Taylor has been with Gulfstream for 20 years, and before joining Gulfstream worked for 7 years at McDonnell Douglas Aircraft Company in Long Beach, California in Human Factors Research and Development.
Susan has been instrumental in applying human factors methods to engineering design of several Gulfstream flight decks, including the GV-SP, GIV-X, G650, and most recently, G500/600. Susan holds a Master of Science in Industrial Psychology, Human Factors from California State University, Long Beach and a Bachelor of Science in Biology from University of Arizona. She has held a Certification in Professional Ergonomics for 25 years.
The following are directions for getting to the Seminar:
From I-95 heading north towards Exit 106, Jimmy Deloach Parkway.
Heading north on I-95, turn right (eastward) off Exit 106 onto Jimmy Deloach Parkway.
B. Take first right onto Crossroads Parkway
Turn left onto Innovation Drive and then turn left at the second building which is RDC IV. Visitor parking is right in front.
Proceed through the glass doors into the lobby and you will be assembled there for badges.
E. Wait in the front lobby of RDC IV until all students
have assembled. It is imperative that
everyone is on time to this session!
