Taylor a Francis is delighted to announce the publication of an outstanding new reference work, the International Encyclopedia of Ergonomics and Human Factors edited by Waldemar Karwowski. It is the first encyclopedia in the field and provides a comprehensive and authoritative compendium of current knowledge on ergonomics and human factors and a definitive and powerful resource. It also gives specific information on concepts and tools unique to ergonomics. It consists of approximately 500 entries running to about 2016 pages, published in three volumes and on CD-ROM. The entries are organized alphabetically and written in such a way that the non-expert will get a clear and simple outline of the topic as well as some precise practical information (such as a table of normative anthropometric data). It also includes a bibliography structured by theme. Technical terms are defined (where possible) within entries as well as in a glossary; so both students and professionals should find this invaluable, whether they have ergonomics, engineering, computing or psychology backgrounds. Experts and researchers should also find it an excellent source of information on areas beyond the range of their direct interests.Self-managed Work Teams Service Quality and Ergonomics Shift work The nature of work. autonomy (discretion regarding work methods and procedures), work schedule autonomy (the extent to which people can control ... initiatives were in the Swedish motor industry, and in particular at Saab-Scania (Sodertalje) and Volvo (Kalmar and elsewhere). ...
