Publisher: Intellect Books
This volume reviews mid-1980s research in the development of computer systems that employ advanced technology to meet the needs of an expanding user population, while remaining sensitive to human requirements. Contributions from researchers in such diverse areas as user interface technology through to controlled experimental evaluations of systems and human factors principles are included in this volume. Topics considered includes recommendations for dialogue design, views of organizations on human factors, graphical and multimedia human/computer interaction, perspectives for the future of interactive systems, and the design of languages for applications in teleconferencing, databases for videotex systems and office automation.
The goal of this book is to provide information systems professionals and academicians with a human factors orientation and practical guidelines relating to human factors issues. It is also intended for use as a textbook for graduate-level students. Researchers and practitioners alike understand that information systems success is very much dependent on incorporating good human factors into system design. The general introduction serves as a position treatise for the study of human factors in information systems. The disciplines of computer science, information systems, human factors engineering, and computer human interaction (CHI) are explored as contributing fields to human factors in IS (HFIS). The goal of this introduction is to differentiate HFIS from the contributing disciplines and to discuss overlapping issues and topics of focus to be addressed later in the text.

The previous edition of the International Encyclopedia of Ergonomics and Human Factors made history as the first unified source of reliable information drawn from many realms of science and technology and created specifically with ergonomics professionals in mind. It was also a winner of the Best Reference Award 2002 from the Engineering Libraries Division, American Society of Engineering Education, USA, and the Outstanding Academic Title 2002 from Choice Magazine. Not content to rest on his laurels, human factors and ergonomics expert Professor Waldemar Karwowski has overhauled his standard-setting resource, incorporating coverage of tried and true methods, fundamental principles, and major paradigm shifts in philosophy, thought, and design. Demonstrating the truly interdisciplinary nature of this field, these changes make the second edition even more comprehensive, more informative, more, in a word, encyclopedic. Keeping the format popularized by the first edition, the new edition has been completely revised and updated. Divided into 13 sections and organized alphabetically within each section, the entries provide a clear and simple outline of the topics as well as precise and practical information. The book reviews applications, tools, and innovative concepts related to ergonomic research. Technical terms are defined (where possible) within entries as well as in a glossary. Students and professionals will find this format invaluable, whether they have ergonomics, engineering, computing, or psychology backgrounds. Experts and researchers will also find it an excellent source of information on areas beyond the range of their direct interests.
This book covers topics such as digitalization of production, operations, logistics and supply chains leading to new requirements for human capabilities and collaboration. The content is relevant for research as well as industry as digitalization is shaping all value chain processes anew. A special focus is directed towards an interdisciplinary perspective, including management science, economics, sociology, work science, computer science and psychology. In order to foster the dialogue between business practice and academics as well as university teaching and research, this contributed book is addressing academic as well as professional business views on digitalization.
Winner of a 2013 CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title Award The third edition of a groundbreaking reference, The Human-Computer Interaction Handbook: Fundamentals, Evolving Technologies, and Emerging Applications raises the bar for handbooks in this field. It is the largest, most complete compilation of HCI theories, principles, advances, case st
