4-0 out of 5 stars Good introduction to Human Factors Engineering
Wickens et al. really fill the gap between system engineering and cognitive psychology. I have found quite a few of books of this kind. 5-0 out of 5 stars Extraordinary!
Wickens is a true pioneer in the field of human factors who fills the gap between (system) engineering and cognitive psychology with great diligence and competence. This book, "An Introduction to Human Factors Engineering", is another excellent reference tool made for engineers to integrate psychologic research results in their creations; I read it in combination with Wickens' "Engineering Psychology and Human Performance", which concentrates rather on the psychological perspective of human factors than on practical design advices. Both books have considerable overlappings, and are similar to each other, even in the structure of the chapters; nevertheless, I highly recommend them both. I have not (yet) found better literature for this field.

3-0 out of 5 stars Valuable introduction and future resource to Human Factors,
Informative presentation of basic Human Factors principles from a psychology perspective.Touches on Cognition, Perception, and the Design Process.The last of which is extremely valuable for any UI design.Handy reference tool. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars great reference - cd is pretty worthless
this book is a great reference for those who deal in any way with the human form. i, for example, am a 3d character animator andthis book is perfect for nailing correct human proportions and visualizing range of motion. however, the accompanying cd is basically an advertisement for ErgoForms, the autocad version of the drawings in the book. only the 1% man drawing (the smallest average male figure)is included on the cd, which is pretty useless for what i need. if the book weren't so expensive i'd give it a four star rating. i thought i was getting more on the cd to warrant the price. ...

Editorial Review

Anyone who designs anything to be used by humans--from physical objects to computer programs to conceptual tools--must read this book, and it isan equally tremendous read for anyone who has to use anything created by another human. It could forever change how you experience and interact with your physical surroundings, open your eyes to the perversity of bad design andthe desirability of good design, and raise your expectations about how things Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Do not continue with life until reading!
This update to "The Psychology of everyday things" is quite possibly my favorite book.Let me start with the negatives, as I can think of so few: I will admit that at times Donald Norman draws out his points to the extent that one wonders if he needed to meet a word count for a particular section.And some of the concepts are outdated (notably the magical 5-7 range; psychologists have put that one out to pasture).
4-0 out of 5 stars Ever wonder...
If you've ever wondered how things come into being and concepts behind them? Then this book is for you. For me, it aided me by gaining a better understanding into what sort of concepts I should be working through in forming my presentations for work.

5-0 out of 5 stars Read this book to feel good about yourself
Everyone's got one's share of distressing moments, failing to use some variations of widely utilized hardware like doors, windows, entertainment systems, faucets etc. I know I've got quite a lot of them. I used to think it was because I am slightly dyslexic.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good News!
A review of our book stated that the body measurement data came from 1960 Air Force studies.The reviewer should be pleased to know that the book actually contains some of the latest anthropometric data available for the U.S. population.Just before publication of the Human Factors Design Handbook, the U.S. Army completed measurements of nearly 9000 subjects. These data are contained in our book.While this is not a profile of the civilian population (male and female subjects ranged from age 18 to 51), it does provide fairly good estimates.Unfortunately, even now there is no comprehensive survey data for United States civilian population.Currently the Society of Automotive Engineers is coordinating a massive survey of United States and European civilian populations.The project participants include Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and several industrial partners.The survey is called the Civilian American and European Surface Anthropometry Resource, or CAESARTM and data should be available late in 2001.2-0 out of 5 stars A rerun with only a few new parts

5-0 out of 5 stars SPARKS THINKING ON TOPIC OVERLOOKED IN ORGANIZATION CHANGE.
Explores the design of the physical workplace and the role this factor plays in improving productivity and operational effectiveness. Based on a four-year research project conducted by the MIT School of Architecture andPlanning's Space Planning and Organization Research Group, this bookintroduces the concept of Process Architecture, meaning engaging a widearray of stakeholders in rethinking the dynamic relationship between workprocesses and the spatial, technological, financial, and organizationalenvironments with which these processes occur. The authors provide acomprehensive explanation of the approach and framework with cases from thefield. For those concerned with organizational strategy and design, thiswork introduces a key aspect-the workplace-often overlooked in organizationchange initiatives. This is an thoughtful book with original thinking.Highly recommended.

I used this book in a graduate Human Factors course, and while I disliked it at first, I slowly grew to hate it. I give it two stars because it does, on occasion, contain good information, but more often than not is disjointed, poorly organized, and unfocused.

Editorial Review

With the many recent advances in technology, it seems, there has followed a diminution of quality. Electronic books have several advantages over their print counterparts, for instance. But for the time being, they're hard to use and unattractive to boot. Computers, which are supposed to make our lives easier, are commonly sources of frustration and wasted time. Movies are wondrously chock-a-block with special effects--but someone forgot the story. And so on.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Useful in Academic Settings
I've used this book when teaching a human-computer interaction (HCI) course in an engineering psychology program. While there are two extensive texts on HCI I found their emphasis too much on the engineering side. Bailey, while including good technical material, also provides a perspective that fits well with engineering psychology. His information combines well with that in books by Wickens.5-0 out of 5 stars Very good book..
It's a very good book. I liked it because it illustrates many problems with human computer interaction/design and it also gives you hints on how to avoid these problems. The book is very straightforward and easy to understand. I specially enjoyed the sections dealing with readability and reading distances. This is the preferred book to have on my bookshelf when I'm designing consumer products. Happy reading ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Ergonomics For Beginners: A Quick Reference Guide
I picked up a copy of the first edition of this book while working on my master's degree in ergonmics. I found it to be a useful quick reference. Once working as an ergonomist it proved to be a valuable tool. It is small enough to be easy to carry along when going out to work sites. The various illustrations are simple and clear; handy when explaining a concept. I've recommended it to workers, managers and supervisors who wanted a low-cost reference. It is a tool they can use after I'm gone to answer basic questions. In short, if you want one book about ergonomics and are concerned about cost then this one would be an excellent choice.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good content, questionable printing quality
Good explanation of traditional work measurement techniques and does discuss their application to support the "trendy" lean manufacturing techniques.As such, will help practioners of lean techniques to use a sound engineered/quantified approach.At times, seems like a commercial for author's consulting business.Page paper quality, photocopy pictures and illustrations are not professional quality.Price is questionable given printing quality.

3-0 out of 5 stars Motion & Time Study for FAT Manufacturing
Although this book has valuable information regarding traditional time and motion techniques, it does a poor job of addressing the lean manufacturing aspect.In today's dynamic manufacturing environment, the Industrial Engineer is forever pressed to increase throughput and reduce inventories rather than study time standards in infinite detail.Given these constraints, the fusion of more contemporary lean manufacturing techniques with traditional time and motion studies was severely lacking in this textbook.

5-0 out of 5 stars Design Principles For Senior Living
The author gives advice on designing and furnishing a smart aging home, providing room-by-room analyses, checklists, and recommendations for resources. She addresses specific physical conditions and considers 'the healing bedroom' as a means to setting up a home hospital. And she covers 'the caring community', outlining the local support systems available for the onset of health and disability issues. (I found the reference to 'motion seating' and the company that makes it to be worth the price of the book alone.) Having seen my father through his last years, I already had an appreciation of the need for things as basic as proper seating and an accessible bathroom. The author's experience with her mother's Alzheimer's disease gave me even more to think about. This book appears to be going out of print which is unfortunate because it is quite practical. Buy it while you can.

5-0 out of 5 stars A fine book
Briefly, a fine book to sensitize one to issues of design as they apply to older persons.Although much of this book pertains to new constructions, I used it to sensitize me to issues that were also relevant to retrofit--such as putting up railings, etc., in an existing house. ... Read more
