As industrial processes have become more automated, there is increasing concern about the performance of the people who control these systems. Human error is increasingly cited as the cause of accidents across many sectors of industry.

This book provides state-of-the-art information on various aspects of human-machine interaction and human-centred issues encountered in the control room setting. Subject coverage includes vigilance and human error in control room situations, analysis and training of control room activities, and control room design including alarm systems.

Based on a successful multi-disciplinary IEE conference and illustrated with useful casestudies, this book is essential reading for all students, engineering professionals and managers interested in human-machine interaction and human performance and ergonomics within the control room setting.
