This book introduces Human-Centered Design (HCD) and outlines the benefits of the approach for mining equipment and new technology. It is a process that aims to make equipment and systems more usable and acceptable by focusing on the end user, their tasks, their work environment, or use context. This process requires that users and other stakeholders are involved throughout the design and development process of the equipment or system. To date, HCD has not been widely applied to the design, development, and deployment of mining equipment or new technology.
Table of Contents: Why HCD for Mining Equipment? Principles, Processes, and Tools for HCD; Current Status of Mining HCD; HCD Educational Material; HCD Case Studies; What Now for Mining HCD?
