Summary

From the Publisher:

'Human Factors in Systems Engineering' shows how to integrate human factors into the design of tools, machines, and systems so that they match human abilities and limitations.

Unlike virtually all other books on human factors, which leave the implementation of general guidelines to engineers and designers with little or no human factors expertise, this unique book shows that the proper role of the human factors specialist is to translate general guidelines into project specific design requirements to which engineers can design.

Again, while other human factors books ignore the standards, specifications, requirements, and other work products that must be prepared by engineers, this book emphasises the methods used to generate the human factors inputs for engineering work products, and the points in the development process where these inputs are needed.
