  1. Self-Regulation in Activity Theory

    Applied Work Design for Human-Computer and Human-Machine Systems

    By Gregory Z. Bedny, Waldemar Karwowski, Inna Bedny

    Series: Ergonomics Design & Mgmt. Theory & Applications

    Every complex human–machine system includes a computer as a critically important means of work. However, an operator’s interaction with a computerized system cannot be reduced to only performing computer-based tasks. Today human-computer interaction (HCI) is not limited to trained software users....

  6. Constructive Ergonomics

    Edited by Pierre Falzon

    The goal for ergonomics has always been to adapt work, work environments, and machines to humans. But is this goal still sufficient? Does it satisfy the needs of the individual or of societies and organizations as they operate now? Constructive Ergonomics provides an answer to these questions....
