Due to shorter productlife cycles in manufacturing industry there is a lot of pressure on the process of designing new work systems. Early attention for human factors would lower the costs compared to changes at a later stage. Low cost tools for workstations design could help especially small to medium sized assembly enterprises. However, these...

We investigated the transfer of training of a stand-alone educational serious game supported with automated feedback and instruction compared to conventional on-the-job training (OJT). If transfer of training is sufficiently high, these types of games could reduce time-consuming and expensive OJT saving instructional personnel. In a case study...

A brief historical review of test methods used for selecting air traffic controllers (ATCOs) shows that in contrast to e.g. ability tests and job samples, personality tests have been used rather infrequently. The lesser popularity of personality tests may be explained from the belief that personality tests are generally less valid predictors of...
