Fitting the Human: Introduction to Ergonomics / Human Factors Engineering, Seventh Edition

Karl H.E. Kroemer
January 10, 2017

This new edition undergraduate introductory textbook follows the motto of the previous versions: "Solid information, easy-to-read, easy to understand, easy to apply." The aim remains the same: "Human engineering" workplaces, tools, machinery, computers, lighting, shiftwork, work demands, the...

Fundamentals of User-Centered Design: A Practical Approach

Brian Still, Kate Crane
December 17, 2016

There has been some solid work done in the area of User-Centered Design (UCD) over the last few years. What’s been missing is an in-depth, comprehensive textbook that connects UCD to usability and User Experience (UX) principles and practices. This new textbook discusses a theoretical framework in...

Nonlinear Analysis for Human Movement Variability

Nicholas Stergiou
January 26, 2016

How Does the Body’s Motor Control System Deal with Repetition? While the presence of nonlinear dynamics can be explained and understood, it is difficult to be measured. A study of human movement variability with a focus on nonlinear dynamics, Nonlinear Analysis for Human Movement Variability,...

Systems Engineering: Design Principles and Models

Dahai Liu
August 26, 2015

For the past several decades, systems engineering has grown rapidly in its scope and application and shown significant benefits for the design of large, complex systems. However, current systems engineering textbooks are either too technical or at a high conceptual level. Written by an expert with...

Evaluation of Human Work, Fourth Edition

John R. Wilson, Sarah Sharples
April 16, 2015

Written by experts with real-world experience in applying ergonomics methodology in a range of contexts, Evaluation of Human Work, Fourth Edition explores ergonomics and human factors from a "doing it" perspective. More than a cookbook of ergonomics methods, the book encourages students to think...

Human–Computer Interaction: Fundamentals and Practice

Gerard Jounghyun Kim
March 20, 2015

Although life continues to become increasingly embedded with interactive computing services that make our lives easier, human-computer interaction (HCI) has not been given the attention it deserves in the education of software developers at the undergraduate level. Most entry-level HCI textbooks...

Human Factors Engineering and Ergonomics: A Systems Approach, Second Edition

Stephen J. Guastello
December 19, 2013

Although still true to its original focus on the person–machine interface, the field of human factors psychology (ergonomics) has expanded to include stress research, accident analysis and prevention, and nonlinear dynamical systems theory (how systems change over time), human group dynamics, and...

Resilience Engineering in Practice: A Guidebook

Jean Pariès, John Wreathall, Erik Hollnagel
November 01, 2013

Resilience engineering has since 2004 attracted widespread interest from industry as well as academia. Practitioners from various fields, such as aviation and air traffic management, patient safety, off-shore exploration and production, have quickly realised the potential of resilience engineering...

Fundamental Issues in Defense Training and Simulation

George Galanis, Robert Sottilare, Christopher Best
July 28, 2013

Defense forces have always invested a great deal of their resources in training. In recent times, changes in the complexity and intensity of operations have reaffirmed the importance of ensuring that warfighters are adequately prepared for the environments in which they are required to work. The...

Fundamentals of Biomechanics

Ronald L. Huston
April 18, 2013

In the last three or four decades, studies of biomechanics have expanded from simple topical applications of elementary mechanics to entire areas of study. Studies and research in biomechanics now exceed those in basic mechanics itself, underlining the continuing and increasing importance of this...

Quality Engineering: Off-Line Methods and Applications

Chao-Ton Su
February 26, 2013

As quality becomes an increasingly essential factor for achieving business success, building quality improvement into all stages—product planning, product design, and process design—instead of just manufacturing has also become essential. Quality Engineering: Off-Line Methods and Applications...
