Paper Abstract

Human factors are one of the most neglected aspects of reliability, even though they appear to be a major source of unreliability. Regardless of the accuracy of photo-optical instruments, if they are operated by a man, the reliability of the instruments will drop approximately 80 per cent. In this supplementary paper, some of the psychological aspects of the sources of unreliability in man-machine systems are briefly discussed. This discussion consequently helps in the consideration of the selection and training of users of photo-optical instruments.
