  • Description: Employing human factors and user-centered systems engineering methodology and design principles to the development of smart cities has the potential of establishing a novel field of research. This paper introduces a novel human factors knowledge management framework for collaborative education, design and modeling of the next generation of smarter cities. A conceptual framework and practical applications of systems engineering approaches to support smarter cities development is proposed. The human systems component in collaborative systems engineering aims to ensure that human considerations for learners and designers have a prominent place in the integrated design and development of sustainable, smarter cities throughout the total system lifecycle. Future challenges that collaborative human and systems engineering techniques are likely to face in this domain are also discussed.
