Summary:
There has not yet been a comprehensive method that goes behind 'human error' and beyond the failure concept, and various complicated accidents have accentuated the need for it. The Functional Resonance Analysis Method (FRAM) fulfils that need. This book presents a detailed and tested method that can be used to model how complex and dynamic socio-technical systems work, and understand both why things sometimes go  Read more...

Publisher Synopsis

'One of Hollnagel's strengths is tenacity. Rather than completing a method and declaring victory, he continues to explore issues of how to understand complex socio-technical systems. Rather than a Read more...
