Abstract:

Human factors engineers are seeking the opportunity to have an early impact on the design of man-machine systems to be involved from concept development onward. With this opportunity comes a responsibility. We must provide tools that allow the design team to predict human performance in the same manner that hardware and software performance is predicted. Mathematical models of human performance constitute one - perhaps the most intellectual - category of methods for addressing this requirement. Contents Task Allocation and Workload Analysis Models Models of Individual Tasks Models of Multi-Task Situations Crew Performance Models Workspace Design - Anthropometrical and Biomechanical Approaches Models of Training and Skill Retention Review and Critique.
