Human Engineering Models: A User’s Perspective

  • A. J. Hulme
  • W. I. Hamilton

Abstract

British Aerospace is the United Kingdom’s major producer of military and civil aircraft, of guided weapons, and of electronic and satellite systems. Many of these are man/men-machine systems and consequently the Company is very concerned with the optimisation of the human-system relationship.
