Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

This handbook provides vital information on the effective design and use of systems requiring interaction between humans, machines, and the environment. Six broad areas of study are covered including intrapersonal relationships on the job, the application of ``analytical capability'', the scope and limitation of each methodology, the applications of present methodologies to specific work situations, and the manufacturing and service industries.

Reviews provided by Syndetics


For ergonomics-the man-machine interface or the role of humans in complex systems-this new field of study known as ``human factors'' now has its own definitive handbook. With fewer illustrations and more text than its closest competition, Wesley E. Woodson's 1981 Human Factors Design Handbook (CH, Nov '81), this volume nevertheless overwhelms Woodson with its authoritative and comprehensive coverage of the subject. Composed of 1,874 pages in 66 chapters by 103 contributors, The Handbook of Human Factors is the culmination of years of work by its editor, who also edited the prize-winning Handbook of Industrial Engineering (CH, Oct '82). The major drawbacks of the handbook under review are its small print and its heavy textual content; however, the volume will be indispensable for the college and university library reference room, and for engineering and computer science faculty.-C.M. Baldwin, University of Arizona
