Comfort parameters series for civil aircraft cabin is the basis of comprehensively and correctly capturing the requirements of cabin environment design, which is the criteria of the design for civil aircraft comfort cabin. To establish this parameters series, analytic hierarchy process and system engineering theory is used for reference to divide the parameters series to target hierarchy, value hierarchy and project hierarchy. Based on human sensations, cabin environment is divided as thermal environment, air contaminant environment, acoustic environment, luminous environment and solid contact environment. Refer to literature research, typical parameters of every environment category are selected to represent human comfort feelings. According to requirement verification methodology, the method of selecting the value range of comfort parameters is provided, which provide a solution for the design for civil aircraft comfort cabin.
