This in-depth field guide describes how to create products for human use, including systems, services, and environments. It delivers an overview of human factors and the application of research to product and service development. It examines ways to recognize, analyze, and solve problems in the development process, providing design and human factors professionals, systems engineers, and R&D managers with the orientation, process, and methods to perform human-centered research.Human Factors Methods will help you define a design opportunity, develop product goals, and establish criteria to meet those goals. The text offers an easy-to-use road map for collecting and analyzing human performance information, applying that information to the creation of solutions, and using the information to evaluate potential solutions. It allows developers to determine why one solution is preferable over another; a chapter on cost-effectiveness prioritizes solutions based upon apparent value.In three sections, the book demonstrates a way to design products that extend, amplify, and enhance human capabilities. Human Factors Practice explains research context including the operational environment and internal and external influences. Human Factors Methods explains how to perform a wide variety of procedures for human-oriented research and development. Application demonstrates how to put the results to use.
