People in Control: Human Factors in Control Room Design

£29.99

Product description

Institution of Electrical Engineers 2001. Noyes, Jan & Bransby, Matthew (editors). Book condition: As new. No DJ. In immaculate condition inside and out. Appears to be unread.

The aim of this book is to provide state-of-the-art information on various aspects of human-machine interaction and human-centred issues encountered in the control room setting. As industrial processes have become more automated, there is increasing concern about the performance of the people who control these systems. Human error is increasingly cited as the cause of accidents across many sectors of industry. This book is written primarily by engineers, for engineers involved with human factor issues. Based on a successful multidisciplinary conference on the subject, and illustrated with useful case studies, this book is essential reading for all students, engineering professionals, and managers interested in machine-human interactions.
