Man Machine Interfaces (Ergonomics Index Page...)

Ergonomics is the study of human abilities and characteristics which affect the design of equipment, systems, and jobs. The terms ergonomics and human factors can be used interchangeably. The name Ergonomics was derived from the Greek words: Ergon/ergos - work; Nomikos/nomos - natural laws - control and orderly assignment.
