Abstract

Human factors research as it applies to the acceptability of computer based office systems is described with special emphasis on the importance of their organizational and social contexts. The factors influencing acceptance of man-machine systems are illustrated by case studies and seven dimensions for the evaluation of acceptability are proposed as are five principles to be observed when making evaluations. Implications of human factors research for the safe operation of hazardous industrial facilities are discussed.
