Overview

The evaluation and assessment of appropriate design approaches for usable human-machine interfaces is at the heart of ergonomics. A Guide to Methodology in Ergonomics arises from work, carried out by Neville Stanton for the EPSRC/Department of Transport, to compile and review a pool of methodologies currently used throughout the human factors world. The book describes this range of methodologies, and provides evidence of "real-world" validity and reliability. The costs and benefits for each are assessed, as are the usability and applicability. "A Guide to Methodology in Ergonomics" will be an invaluable resource for professional ergonomists, students at masters and post-graduate levels, and industry and business professionals undertaking in-house ergonomic evaluations.

Incl. 12 methodologies presented w/the case study approach; utility analysis; training, reliability, validity.
