Abstract:

Human Factors in Practice: Concepts and Applications is written for the practitioner who wishes to learn about human factors (HF) but is more interested in application (applied research) than theory (basic research). Each chapter discusses the application of important human factors theories, principles and concepts, presented at a level that can be easily understood by layman readers with no prior knowledge or formal education in human factors. The book illustrates to the non-HF practitioner the many varied domains in which human factors has been applied as well as serving to showcase current research in these areas. All chapters address the common overarching theme of applying human factors theories, principles and concepts to address real-world problems, and follow a similar structure to ensure consistency across chapters. Standard sections within each chapter include a discussion of the scientific underpinnings, a description of relevant HF methods and guidance on sources of further information, case studies to illustrate application, and a summary of likely future trends. Each chapter concludes with a short list of key terms and definitions to enhance the reader's understanding of the content. Featuring specialist contributors from a variety of disciplines and cultural backgrounds, the book represents a diverse range of perspectives on human factors and will appeal to a broad international audience. It is consciously not a classroom textbook but rather intended to be read at the workplace by non-HF practitioners, and written specifically with their needs in mind. Reading this book will give all practitioners a solid grounding in modern human factors and its application in real-world situations.
