Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A companion volume to Organization and Management of Advanced Manufacturing (Wiley). Together, the two volumes cover the spectrum of human factors issues relevant to the design, operation, and management of advanced manufacturing technology. The present volume covers problems of work design and analysis in advanced manufacturing; the various problems of personnel development as they arise in the context of computer-aided decision support for human-based activity domains; and future trends in computer-integrated rather than computer-interfaced manufacturing technology, and related human factors issues.
