Abstract : The materials in this report are organized so as to do three things: (1) Introduce the ergonomics view to the analyst who is without background in the behavioral and biological sciences, (2) make the spectrum of ergonomics models reviewable by the sophisticated analyst, and (3) make it apparent that ergonomics concentrates on certain mechanical aspects of the human operator and that even these limited aspects can be very complex. The report contains (1) discussion materials to introduce the viewpoints and approaches of the ergonomist, (2) a presentation of selected samples of ergonomics models, and (3) references to application examples and to other sources of information.
