Focusing on the application of human factors and ergonomics in the design of alarm systems, this book brings together all the disparate areas in a single volume.;  The aim of the book is to present current human factor issues regarding alarm design in a variety of setting, such as industrial alarm systems in process industries, aviation, automobiles and intensive care.  It argues that the severe short comings of alarm systems can be overcome through the use of human factors evaluation and design integration techniques.  Contributors cover the areas of HCI, task analysis, training, personnel selection, and design  and human behavior in an emergency, which of course, can be influenced positively and negatively by the design and deployment of alarm systems.
