Title:   Human Errors      

Course Number:      ENP 0149C
Campus: Medford/Somer.   
Room: TBA

Course Description:

Graduate-level seminar course designed for students who are interested in getting a broad overview of different research methods and analytical techniques in human factors/ergonomics research.
Accidents happen, but what does it mean to identify "Human Error" as the cause? Does Human Error even exist? Can we measure it? Can we prevent errors? How do systems work so well in light of such error-prone humans? In this course, we examine Human Error from many perspectives, including differing philosophies, models, and methods for measuring error and reliability. At the end of the course, students will be familiar with the controversies regarding Human Error and some of the most common methods for trying to account for human performance and reliability.
