About this product
- DescriptionWritten by experts with real-world experience in applying ergomics methodology in a range of contexts, Evaluation of Human Work, Fourth Edition explores ergomics and human factors from a doing it perspective. More than a cookbook of ergomics methods, the book encourages students to think about which methods they should apply, when, and why. Now in its fourth edition, the editors have again brought together a team of world-rewned experts and created a forum for them to discuss and debate their most valued approaches. See What's New in the Fourth Edition: * Significant change of authorship and content in each chapter * Five new chapters covering inclusive design, situation awareness, neuroergomics, ergomics and quality, and standards in ergomics design and evaluation * Discussion of the idea of reflective practice and Ergomics/Human Factors * Examination of the systems perspective w prevalent in the field * Coverage of new tools and the relationship between these physiologically measured parameters and theoretical concepts such as workload, fatigue, stress, or effort In addition to being a foundational text, the book is an authoritative reference for practising ergomists. Completely revised and updated, this fourth edition retains the features that have made the book a perennial favorite. After reading each chapter you will feel as though you understand the context of how to practise ergomics and what aspects of method selection and implementation you should consider. The book provides a guide to the benefits ergomics and human factors can offer industry, business, or human service professionals.
