The objective of this paper is to tackle the problem of Human Error Management in modern technological settings. The initial assumption is that designers and regulators have recognised the importance and role of "human error". This implies to systematically deal with prevention, recovery and mitigation. Moreover, a variety of architectures, models and methods exist and have been sufficiently developed at theoretical levels. This paper concentrates on the development of a methodology that supports the analyst in selecting the most appropriate method and approach to be applied in practice for the case at hand and offers guidelines for implementation in a step-by-step way.
