Methods and tools (i.e., iSHORT, iQ&A) were developed and used to collect near real-time human factors and habitability data during spaceflight missions. Having a means to collect near real-time data reduces reliance on human memory and has the ability to capture small issues that may have a cumulative effect. These issues may result in crew frustration and inefficiencies. This study had two aims.
Aim 1: Using near-time reporting, characterize human factors and habitability aboard the ISS, which includes self-reported negative, neutral, and positive observations and assessments.

Aim 2:  Preliminarily characterize crew utilization and perceptions of specific ISS habitat components/locations.

These efforts resulted in recommendations for future vehicle design, as well as proposed changes to NASA standards.
