Synopsis

Human Factors Methods A Practical Guide for Engineering and Design by Neville Stanton, Paul Salmon, Guy (Brunel University) Walker, Christopher Baber

Human Factors Methods: A Practical Guide for Engineering and Design presents more than ninety design and evaluation methods, and is designed to act as an ergonomics methods manual, aiding both students and practitioners. The eleven sections of the book represent the different categories of ergonomics methods and techniques that can be used in the evaluation and design process. Offering a 'how-to' text on a substantial range of ergonomics methods that can be used in the design and evaluation of products and systems, it is a comprehensive point of reference for all these methods. An overview of the methods is presented in chapter one, with a methods matrix showing which can be used in conjunction. The following chapters detail the methods showing how to apply them in practice. Flowcharts, procedures and examples cover the requirements of a diverse audience and varied applications of the methods. The final chapter presents a case study of methods being used together in a system evaluation project.
