Description

Systemic-structural activity theory (SSAT), founded by Gregory Bedny, is a relatively new unified framework for the study of efficiency of human performance, equipment, and software design.

This book presents new recently obtained data in the field of SSAT that can be used in the study of efficiency and complexity of human performance.

New principles and revised methods for the study of human work are supplemented by practical examples in manufacturing, construction industry, aviation, and human-computer interaction.
