About this book

This book brings together studies broadly dealing with human error from different disciplines and perspectives. They concern human performance; human variability and reliability analysis; medical, driver and pilot error, as well as automation error; reports on root cause analyses; and the cognitive modeling of human error. In addition, they highlight cutting-edge applications in safety management, defense, security, transportation, process controls, and medicine, as well as more traditional fields of application.

Based on the AHFE 2017 International Conference on Human Error, Reliability, Resilience, and Performance, held on July 17–21, 2017 in Los Angeles, California, USA, the book includes experimental papers, original reviews, and reports on case studies, as well as meta-analyses, technical guidelines, best practice and methodological papers. It offers a timely reference guide for researchers and practitioners dealing with human error in a diverse range of fields.

About the authors

Ronald L. Boring, Ph.D., is a principal human factors scientist at Idaho National Laboratory. Prior to joining Idaho National Laboratory, he worked as a human reliability scientist at Sandia National Laboratories, where he was involved in projects for the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the US Department of Energy. He has also worked as a usability engineer for the Microsoft Corporation and Expedia Corporation, and as a guest researcher in human-computer interaction at the National Research Council of Canada. He recently completed a one-year assignment as a visiting scientist at the Halden Reactor Project in Norway. Dr. Boring has a BA in Psychology and German from the University of Montana, an MA in Human Factors and Experimental Psychology from New Mexico State University, and a PhD in Cognitive Science from Carleton University. He was a Fulbright Academic Scholar to the University of Heidelberg, Germany. He has published over 100 research articles in a wide variety of human reliability, human factors, and human- computer interaction forums. He has served on the organizing committees for international conferences held by the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society, IEEE, and the Association for Computing Machinery.
