The evaluation and assessment of appropriate design approaches for usable human-machine interfaces is at the heart of ergonomics. A Guide to Methodology in Ergonomics arises from work, carried out by Neville Stanton for the EPSRC/Department of Transport, to compile and review a pool of methodologies currently used throughout the human factors world. The book describes this range of methodologies, and provides evidence of real-world validity and reliability. The costs and benefits for each are assessed, as are the usability and applicability. A Guide to Methodology in Ergonomics will be an invaluable resource for professional ergonomists, students at masters and post-graduate levels, and industry and business professionals undertaking in-house ergonomic evaluations.
