Description

David Meister, in his latest volume, sets explores the uncharted depths behind the most common practices and most basic principles of Human Factors (HF) and its measurement process. Seeking to question the status quo, he asks what significant changes have occurred in the discipline since its inception and what capabilities have been developed. To what extent have HF design specialists made use of research outputs and how do these outputs contribute to system design? Neither didactic nor stodgy, this book examines the conceptual foundations of customary measurement practices and stimulates readers to ask their own questions. In a field with much unknown territory, Meister has provided a necessary exploration guide.
