WELCOME to the Gamification and Human Factors Engineering Seminar sponsored by

On 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.

Brief Biographies:

Robert Farrell
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 and Gulfstream.

While 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).

Jim Gallagher
Jim 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
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.

A. Heading north on I-95, turn right (eastward) off Exit 106 onto Jimmy Deloach Parkway.

B. Take first right onto Crossroads Parkway

C. Turn left onto Innovation Drive and then turn left at the second building which is RDC IV. Visitor parking is right in front.

D. 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!
