Book Description :

Industry underestimates the extent to which behaviour at work is influenced by the design of the working environment. Designing for Human Reliability argues that greater awareness of the contribution of design to human error can significantly enhance HSE performance and improve return on investment. Illustrated with many examples, Designing for Human Reliability explores why work systems are designed and implemented such that "design-induced human error" becomes more-or-less inevitable. McLeod demonstrates how well understood psychological processes can lead people to make decisions and to take actions that otherwise seem impossible to understand. Designing for Human Reliability sets out thirteen key elements to deliver the levels of human reliability expected to achieve the return on investment sought when decisions are made to invest in projects. And it demonstrates how investigation of the human contribution to incidents can be improved by focusing on what companies expected and intended when they chose to rely on human performance as a barrier, or control, against incidents. Recognise some ‘hard truths’ of human performance and learn about the importance of applying the principles of Human Factors Engineering on capital projects Learn from analysis of real-world incidents how differences between ‘fast’ and ‘slow’ styles of thinking can lead to human error in industrial processes Learn how controls and barrier against major incidents that rely on human performance can be strengthened throughout the design and development of assets and equipment

Book Description :

The objectives of Human Reliability are to build reliability into the job, into the machine, and into the environment, and to let man perform naturally. In this book the author shows how these objectives can be achieved by concentrating on human reliability issues during the design stage. This is done by illustrating the relationships between various design features and some aspect of human performance, e.g. human errors. The book is designed as a practical guide to the daily performance of tasks in Human Reliability as well as a general reference and tutorial introduction to the field. It is therefore both practical and theoretical: the first four chapters focus on principles and ramifications relevant to human error prevention; the latter four are primarily concerned with human reliability analysis and prediction methodology. Throughout the book there are extensive references, numerous ready-to-use recommendations, formulas and mathematical models, and computer programs for human reliability work for analyzing, predicting and preventing human errors in a variety of situations. Though some of the material requires undergraduate training in engineering, the more difficult mathematical expositions can be omitted without loss of continuity, but are available for the reader who needs a more complete understanding of the relevant theory.

Book Description :

Nature aside, the world in which we live should be designed for us, from everyday products like scissors and chairs to complex systems in avionics, medicine and nuclear power applications. Now more than ever, technological advances continue to increase the range and complexity of tasks that people have to perform. As a discipline, human factors psychology (ergonomics) therefore has an increasingly important role to play in ensuring that the human user's physical characteristics, cognitive abilities and social needs are taken into account in the development, implementation and operation of products and systems. In this book, Jan Noyes provides a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of human-machine interaction and the design of environments at work. Focusing on topics relevant to user-centred design, she includes coverage of the capabilities and limitations of humans, human-machine interactions, work environments, and organizational issues. Health and safety issues underpin a large amount of work on the human factors of design, and these are addressed fully throughout the book. Each chapter includes case studies that demonstrate the real-world relevance of the points being made and concludes with a list of key points. Although aimed primarily at advanced undergraduates, postgraduates and researchers in organizational and occupational psychology, this book will also be of relevance to students on engineering, computing and applied psychology/human factors programmes.

Book Description :

Of the billions of dollars spent on plant management and operation annually, an estimated 80% of the total amount is spent to rectify the chronic failure of systems, machines, and humans. Although information on human reliability, error, and human factors in engineering maintenance is scattered throughout journals and proceedings, no single resource covers all of these topics within a maintenance safety framework. Consulting different and diverse sources can not only make finding information laborious and time consuming, but also cause delays on the job. Human Reliability, Error, and Human Factors in Engineering Maintenance with Reference to Aviation and Power Generation provides engineers a tool for meeting the increasing problem of human error. Drawing on a myriad of sources, the book provides quick and easy access to information that can then be immediately applied to actual problems in the field. It includes examples and their solutions to illustrate engineering safety management at work and gives readers a view of the intensity of developments in the area. The author’s clear, concise, user-friendly style breaks the information down into understandable and applicable concepts. This book not only provides up-to-date coverage of the on-going efforts in human reliability, error, and human factors in engineering maintenance, but also covers useful developments in the general areas of human factors, reliability, and error. This information can then be translated into increased maintenance safety that has a positive impact on the bottom line.

Book Description :

Human reliability and error have become a very important issue in health care, owing to the vast number of associated deaths each year. For example, according to the findings of the Institute of Medicine in 1999, around 100000 Americans die each year because of human error. This makes human error in health care the eighth leading cause of deaths in the US. Moreover, the total annual national cost of the medical errors is estimated at between $17 billion and $37.6 billion. There are very few books on this subject, and none of them covers it at a significant depth. The need for a book presenting the basics of human reliability, human factors and comprehensive information on error in medical systems is essential. This book meets that need. Contents: Human Reliability and Error Mathematics; Human Factors Basics; Human Reliability and Error Basics; Methods for Performing Human Reliability and Error Analysis in Health Care System; Human Error in Medication; Human Error in Anesthesia; Human Error in Miscellaneous Health Care Areas and Health Care Human Error Cost; Human Factors in Medical Devices; Mathematical Models for Predicting Human Reliability and Error in Medical System; Health Care Human Error Reporting Systems and Data; Appendix: Bibliography: Literature on Human Reliability and Error in Health Care. Readership: Health care and safety professionals, administrators, students, human-factors/psychology specialists, biomedical engineers and health care researchers.

Book Description :

This book, on the ergonomics of human−machine systems, isaimed at engineers specializing in informatics, automation,production or robotics, who are faced with a significant dilemmaduring the conception of human−machine systems. On the onehand, the human operator guarantees the reliability of the systemand has been known to salvage numerous critical situations throughan ability to reason in unplanned, imprecise and uncertainsituations; on the other hand, the human operator can beunpredictable and create disturbances in the automated system. The first part of the book is dedicated to the methods ofhuman-centered design, from three different points of view, thevarious chapters focusing on models developed by human engineersand functional models to explain human behavior in theirenvironment, models of cognitive psychology and models in thedomain of automobile driving. Part 2 develops the methods of evaluation of thehuman−machine systems, looking at the evaluation of theactivity of the human operator at work and human error analysismethods. Finally, Part 3 is dedicated to human−machine cooperation,where the authors show that a cooperative agent comprises aknow-how and a so-called know-how-to-cooperate and show the way todesign and evaluate that cooperation in real industrialcontexts.

Book Description :

The time has come to move into a more humanistic approach of technology and to understand where our world is moving to in the early twenty-first century. The design and development of our future products needs to be orchestrated, whether they be conceptual, technical or organizational. Orchestrating Human-Centered Design presents an Orchestra model that attempts to articulate technology, organizations and people. Human-centered design (HCD) should not be limited to local/short-term/linear engineering, but actively focus on global/long-term/non-linear design, and constantly identify emergent properties from the use of artifacts. Orchestrating Human-Centered Design results from incremental syntheses of courses the author has given at the Florida Institute of Technology in the HCD PhD program. It is focused on technological and philosophical concepts that high-level managers, technicians and all those interested in the design of artifacts should consider. Our growing software -intensive world imposes better knowledge on cognitive engineering, life-critical systems, complexity analysis, organizational design and management, modeling and simulation, and advanced interaction media, and this well-constructed and informative book provides a road map for this.
