Product Overview

Description: Offering a somewhat more psychological perspective than other human factors books on the market, this text describes the capabilities and limitations of the human operator-both physical and mental-and how these should be used to guide the design of systems with which people interact. General principles of human-system interaction and design are presented, along with specific examples of successful and unsuccessful interactions. It links theories of human performance that underlie the principles with real-world examples, without a heavy engineering-oriented perspective. Contents: Preface.
