Explores the breadth and versatility of Human Systems Engineering (HSE) practices and illustrates its value in system development
A Framework of Human Systems Engineering: Applications and Case Studies offers a guide to identifying and improving methods to integrate human concerns into the conceptualization and design of systems. With contributions from a panel of noted experts on the topic, the book presents a series of Human Systems Engineering (HSE) applications on a wide range of topics: interface design, training requirements, personnel capabilities and limitations, and human task allocation.
Each of the book's chapters present a case study of the application of HSE from different dimensions of socio-technical systems. The examples are organized using a socio-technical system framework to reference the applications across multiple system types and domains. These case studies are based in real-world examples and highlight the value of applying HSE to the broader engineering community. This important book:
•Includes a proven framework with case studies to different dimensions of practice, including domain, system type, and system maturity
•Contains the needed tools and methods in order to integrate human concerns within systems
•Encourages the use of Human Systems Engineering throughout the design process
•Provides examples that cross traditional system engineering sectors and identifies a diverse set of human engineering practices
Written for systems engineers, human factors engineers, and HSI practitioners, A Framework of Human Systems Engineering: Applications and Case Studies provides the information needed for the better integration of human and systems and early resolution of issues based on human constraints and limitations.
