Abstract A video system was developed to record the actions of inspectors during a visual and tactile inspection task in an automobile line plant. The system consisted of two video cameras and recorders operated synchronously. The recordings were analysed with a video motion analyser. The search behaviour of the inspectors was described by using four items of information derived from each video frame. As a consequence, the inspection task was resolved into elements with a discrimination of 1/30… 
Comparison of Visual and Visual–Tactile Inspection of Aircraft Engine Blades
Background—In aircraft engine maintenance, the majority of parts, including engine blades, are inspected visually for any damage to ensure a safe operation. While this process is called visual

Integration of inspection tasks into machine operators' jobs in the consumer goods industry
Because workers operating machines under mass production conditions frequently have extremely narrow, highly repetitive job contents which result in unilateral strains, a company manufacturing goods

Determination of Counting Time in Visual Inspection
A model for estimating counting time was built and the time estimated, if the maximum number of saccades does not exceed the number of dots on each sample, may be taken as optimum counting time.
A Descriptive Model of Visual Search
This study used the corneal reflection technique to investigate causes of miscounting in a dot-counting inspection task and developed search process trade-off curves that show the proportion of the two processes in a trial.
Reasons for inspector inaccuracy have been examined in three main groups: reasons of basic individual abilities; of formal organization (training, instructions, physical conditions, the lay-out of
Decision processes in perception.
A brief review of the theory of statistical decision is reviewed and a description of the elements of the theories appropriate to human observers is presented, including a quantitative measure of the criterion.
