Discussed in this paper are a number of problems related to the general theory of reliability of performance of human operator in the systems of automatic control. The author gives definitions of reliability and failure, considers the problem of relationship between reliability and efficiency, dwells on the part played by the extreme conditions and on the qualitative evaluation of reliability. The dependence of such reliability characteristics as prolonged endurance, resistance to disturbances, and switching-over ability, etc. upon the properties of the nervous system of the individual are dealt with in detail. The author stresses the necessity of exercising control over reliability while the operator is engaged in the fulfillment of his functions.
