Abstract

Human factors specialists, including ergonomists, industrial engineers, engineering psychologists, human factors engineers, and many others, continually seek better (more efficient and effective) ways to characterize and measure the human element as part of the system so we can build trains, planes, and automobiles, process control stations, and others with superior human/system interfaces. Yet the human factors specialist is often frustrated by the lack of readily accessible information on human performance, workload, and Situational Awareness (SA) measures. To fill that void, this book was written to guide the reader through the critical process of selecting the appropriate measures of human performance, workload, and SA for objective evaluations.
