Human Factors Methods: A Practical Guide for Engineering and Design presents more than ninety design and evaluation methods, and is designed to act as an ergonomics methods manual, aiding both students and practitioners. The eleven sections of the book represent the different categories of ergonomics methods and techniques that can be used in the evaluation and design process. Offering a 'how-to' text on a substantial range of ergonomics methods that can be used in the design and evaluation of products and systems, it is a comprehensive point of reference for all these methods. An overview of the methods is presented in chapter one, with a methods matrix showing which can be used in conjunction. The following chapters detail the methods showing how to apply them in practice. Flowcharts, procedures and examples cover the requirements of a diverse audience and varied applications of the methods.

Great 'mystery'.
Can't review all pages---access restricted. What do you think the review score would be for a car that didn't allow access to all the features----e.g. 3rd, 4th, and 5th gear are
'missing'; CD/AM-FM radio is 'locked' or 'missing' get the picture. Terrific book for what is available for review.
