Summary
Each year billions of dollars are being spent to develop, manufacture, and operate transportation systems such as aircraft, ships, trains, and motor vehicles throughout the world. During their operation thousands of lives are lost annually due to various types accidents. Needless to say, approximately 70 to 90 percent of transportation crashes are the result of human error to a certain degree. Moreover, it may be added that human errors contribute significantly to most transportation crashes across all modes of transportation. Human Reliability and Error in Transportation Systems is the first book to cover the subject of human reliability across all types of transportation systems. The material will be accessible to readers with no previous knowledge in the field, and is supported with a full explanation of the necessary mathematical concepts together with numerous examples and test problems. Dr B.S. Dhillon is a professor of Engineering Management in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Ottawa. He has published over 330 articles on engineering management, reliability, safety, etc. He is or has been on the editorial boards of 9 international scientific journals, he has served as General Chairman of two international conferences on reliability and quality, and he has been employed as a consultant to various organizations and bodies
