 For undergraduate courses in Human-Factors Engineering, Human-Computer Interaction, engineering Psychology, or Human-Factors Psychology.

You are watching: An introduction to human factors engineering

Offering a somewhat more psychological perspective than other human factors books on the market, this text defines the capabilities and limitations that the person operator—both physical and also mental—and how these should be offered to overview the design of equipment with which human being interact. General ethics of human-system interaction and also design room presented, and included are specific examples of successful and unsuccessful interactions. It links theories of person performance that underlie the principles with real-world experience, without a heavy engineering-oriented perspective.


brand-new - New recommendations to applications—Included whereby relevant.

Allows students to understand just how knowledge of human strengths and weaknesses have the right to lead to far better system design, more effective user training, and better system assessment.
