This second edition of Human Factors Methods: A Practical Guide for Engineering and Design now presents 107 design and evaluation methods as well as numerous refinements to those that featured in the original. The book has been carefully designed to act as an ergonomics methods manual, aiding both students and practitioners. The eleven sections 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, a new addition, illustrates the EAST method, which integrates several well-known methods into a teamwork analysis approach.

  • Cognitive Work Analysis

    Professor Neville A Stanton, Paul M Salmon, Guy H Walker, Dr Daniel P Jenkins

    Over the past decade, Cognitive Work Analysis (CWA) has been one of the popular human factors approaches for complex systems evaluation and design applications. This is reflected by a diverse range of applications across safety critical domains. T...

  • Human Factors in Land Use Planning and Urban Design

    Nicholas Stevens, Paul M Salmon, Guy H Walker, Professor Neville A Stanton

    This book furthers the role of human factors methods in land use planning and urban design that was recognised by Stevens and Salmon in 2014. At a simplistic level the issues found in both discipline areas are one and the same: the design of the e...

Recensioner i media

'As the necessity to consider human factors in system design and operation continues to grow, practitioners require a simple source of reference. This revised version overview of human factors methods delivers just that. While not a solution in itself, it provides an up-to-date reference for people who already have some human factors knowledge.' Erik Hollnagel, University of Southern Denmark, Denmark 'There are many designers and engineers who would like a gentle guide to ergonomics tools, and this book brings together in one place essential methods with validity checks. This new paradigm of introducing ergonomics through presentation of methods is very appealing and I foresee its wide use as a reference by project managers.' Richard H.Y. So, the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Hong Kong SAR, China 'The updated and revised version of the already highly successful handbook by Neville Stanton and his colleagues provides a valuable service to the effective application of human factors and ergonomics. As a methods cookbook, with over 100 step-by-step recipes, clear instructions, and even lots of pictures, it has a place on every practitioner's bookshelf.' Bob Hockey, Emeritus Professor of Psychology, University of Sheffield, UK 'An indispensable resource written by internationally-known experts, this text is the tool that human factors engineers and designers must have to practice their profession. That it is equally vital for researchers and all serious students attests to the breadth and utility of the coverage - an instant classic.' Peter Hancock, University of Central Florida, USA 'All in all, the revised edition of this book serves up a range of dishes for the methods-hungry Human Factors community and delivers them in a very palatable manner, making them easy to digest. I can well imagine that just as my old copy of Delia Smith is still my go to book in the kitchen, this will be my go to book in the office and s
