Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

David Meister, in his latest volume, sets explores the uncharted depths behind the most common practices and most basic principles of Human Factors (HF) and its measurement process. Seeking to question the status quo, he asks what significant changes have occurred in the discipline since its inception and what capabilities have been developed. To what extent have HF design specialists made use of research outputs and how do these outputs contribute to system design? Neither didactic nor stodgy, this book examines the conceptual foundations of customary measurement practices and stimulates readers to ask their own questions. In a field with much unknown territory, Meister has provided a necessary exploration guide.

Book News Annotation:

Meister, who is not further identified, examines the customary practices in the field, and tries to stimulate professionals to ask questions about them. The course may meander a bit, he warns, because the lack of firm data requires considerable speculation, and because he refrains from an academic or didactic tone. Basic premises and principles, the conceptual structure of the profession, and subjective and related methods are among his topics. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

David Meister, a leader in the field of Human Factors, writes a provacative bk about the state of the discipline and hopes to foster development and progress in the field & their means of experimental measurement.
