Barry Tillman: As a human factors engineer, Barry has worked directly with designers, engineering drawings, and software developers for nearly 50 years to achieve safer and more cost-effective human-system interfaces. Barry has been involved with a broad range of systems including coal mining equipment, military vehicles, ships, manufacturing equipment, and space habitats. He has developed human factors analytical tools and written design standards for the military, NASA, and shipping industry. He has also developed and taught numerous human factors engineering and ergonomic courses.
David J. Fitts: David worked for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) for 27 years before retiring in 2015. In his career with NASA he was deeply engaged in the three major human spaceflight programs of his era: the Space Shuttle Program, the International Space Station (ISS) Program, and the next-generation Constellation Program for deep space exploration. During ISS and Constellation development phases, Mr. Fitts served the Agency as the Chief of the Habitability and Human Factors Branch, which focuses on ensuring human capabilities and limitations are strongly integrated into human spaceflight programs’ systems engineering and management processes.
Wesley E. Woodson (deceased) was president of Man Factors Associates, a human factors consulting firm in El Cajon, CA. Experienced in both military and domestic systems and product design in a broad range of applications, he was the author of the first edition of Human Factor Design Handbook: Human Engineering Guide for Equipment Designers (University of California Press, 1964).
Rhonda Rose-Sundholm: Rhonda has over 26 years of communications experience in the aerospace industry. She has worked directly with scientists, engineers and physicians to organize and communicate their information to diverse audiences. She has a background in business administration, configuration management, and information systems, including website design and management.
Peggy Tillman: Peggy was president of a human factors/ergonomics company for over 20 years. She written, illustrated and designed numerous books, presentations, and reports. Ms. Tillman has a degree in behavioral psychology and a teaching credential. She is listed in Marquis Who's Who in the West and Who’s Who in Science and Engineering.

Book Description McGraw-Hill Education - Europe, United States, 2016. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 3rd Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. The third edition of this definitive handbook offers every aspect of updated information on ergonomics and human psychology for product designers. Written by an expert in the field, Human Factors and Ergonomics Design Handbook, Third Edition incorporates latest findings and trends of ergonomics in designing human-friendly products, such as handheld computers, robotics, medical devices, and military/space products to maximize the device functionalities and minimize the negative influence to the human body/mind. Since the 1992 publication of the second edition, there have been major technological developments which tremendously influence our daily use of electronics devices, and industrial and medical usage of high-tech equipment. There also have been continuous discovery of human factors (i.e. how humans interface with equipment and devices) and cognitive workload. This in-depth guide covers these latest developments.500 illustrations Newly added chapters cover medical systems, robotics, small hand-held electronic devices, cognitive workload, and motion environment Systematic approaches separating human factors into macro, mezzo, and micro environments High-tech, high-demand product design examples are included.
