Project Abstract

We are particularly interested in the intersection of psychology (mental models, cognition, decision-making, human error) and  engineering (machine failure, design, productivity, process representation, quality, health and safety, operator functions). This particular project is being undertaken by Mr Rory Horne as a Masters thesis. It involves optimising the presentation of user interface menus, for people with limited physical ability.
