Keeping the format popularized by the first edition, the new edition has been completely revised and updated. Reflecting the copious amount of new information provided, the Handbook has been divided into three volumes. Organized into 13 sections and arranged alphabetically within each section, the entries provide a clear and simple outline of the topics as well as precise and practical information. The book reviews applications, tools, and innovative concepts related to ergonomic research. Technical terms are defined (where possible) within entries as well as in a glossary. Students and professionals will find this format invaluable, whether they have ergonomics, engineering, computing, or psychology backgrounds. The simply formatted, easy-to-use CD provides quick access to reliable information from the many realms of science and technology contributing to the body of knowledge of design for human use.
