The original document was assembled for NASA by the Boeing Aerospace Company (BAC),
Kent Washington, in conjunction with subcontractors Lockheed Missiles and Space
Company (LMSC), Sunnyvale, California; Essec Corporation, Huntsville, Alabama;
and CAMUS, Inc., Springdale, Arkansas.
A Government/Industry Advisory Group (GIAG), composed of a panel of "experts"
and "users", met four times to review the technical content as it was

GIAG user group was composed of invited representatives from all of the prime
aerospace contractors, support contractors, NASA centers and Headquarters, other
Government agencies and some non-aerospace contractors.
technical content of these documents has been thoroughly reviewed by the GIAG
participants. The data can be used
with confidence that all known relevant human engineering requirements
applicable to the space environment have been documented and are as technically
valid as it is possible to determine. Iterations
to NASA-STD-3000 will be developed as physiological and technical knowledge and
from any user are welcome and will be considered for updating the documentation.
