Full description for A Guide to Methodology in Ergonomics
The evaluation and assessment of appropriate design approaches for usable human machine interfaces is at the heart of ergonomics. "A Guide to Methodology in Ergonomics" arises from work carried out by Neville Stanton, funded by the EPSRC/Department of Transport, to compile and review a pool of methodologies currently used throughout the human factors world. The book describes this range of methodologies, and provides evidence of validity and reliability. The costs and benefits for each are assessed, as are the usability and applicability. Each method evaluated is presented with a description of how it works, a flowchart showing stages, and two examples of application.The book is an ideal supplement to training in, and support to, the practical application of ergonomics methods. "A Guide to Methodology in Ergonomics" will be an invaluable resource for professional ergonomists, designers and engineers, students at masters and post-graduate levels, and industry and business professionals undertaking in-house ergonomic evaluations. The book is a comprehensive guide to the study of methodology within ergonomics. It provides evidence of 'real world' validity and reliability. It also assesses the costs and benefits of individual methodologies from which conclusions are drawn and recommendations made. The methodologies included have been tried and tested and incorporated into a training programme run by Ford Jaguar.
