summary: "Completely revised and up to date, A consultant to Human components and Ergonomics, moment version offers a accomplished advent to the sphere. construction at the beginning of the 1st variation, titled advisor to Ergonomics of producing, the recent identify displays the multiplied variety of assurance and applicability of the concepts you'll find within the moment variation. each bankruptcy includes new fabric and a few were fullyyt rewritten. Drawing at the author's adventure in either educating and undefined, the ebook lays to relaxation the typical myths and misconceptions that encompass ergonomics." "Unlike so much ergonomics and human components books that emphasize the actual, this one provides a large evaluate of cognitive in addition to actual ergonomics. Written in an available variety, it offers a platforms method of human elements and ergonomics that results in whole realizing. the writer demonstrates tips to gather info on clients and operators and the way to transform the information to solid layout, and gives a realistic consultant to the layout and research of structures. layout orientated, platforms orientated, and effects orientated, this article presents the instruments had to remedy platforms difficulties and increase sufficient layout solutions."--BOOK JACKET

Sample text

Holes were drilled through the circuit board for insertion of components. Much of the component insertion was automated using special machines—so-called cardstacking machines. However, there were many tasks which could not be automated, including quality control and inspection of component parts and finished products. One important measure of quality in the manufacturing of boards is the percentage production yield. One may set a target yield such that, say, 95% of the boards must pass the quality control test at the end of the manufacturing process.

The second case study deals with improvements in human-computer interaction. There are many ways to measure the benefits, such as reduced task performance time, reduced number of key strokes, or number of user errors. For example, one can measure the time it takes to complete filling in credit card information on an e-commerce web page. 2 ERGONOMICS IMPROVEMENTS IN CARD ASSEMBLY At IBM in Austin, Texas, printed circuit boards for computers were manufactured. The boards consisted of multiple layers of copper sheeting and fiber glass with etched circuitry.

Ergonomics will continue to evolve and professional ergonomists must extend their knowledge to deal with a rapidly changing scenario. I believe that this will require increasing interaction with other disciplines to solve problems. Most problems in this world are of an interdisciplinary nature. In the design of complex systems it is necessary to apply many design criteria simultaneously. ” In other words, there are many goals that drive a design. In manufacturing there are goals related to quality, productivity, and worker satisfaction.
