Human Factors in the Development of Safety-Critical Railway Systems

  title={Human Factors in the Development of Safety-Critical Railway Systems},
  author={Simon Zhang and Weihang Wu},
Existing CENELEC railway safety standards such as EN50126/9 mandate that human factors be addressed in the entire system lifecycle. In particular, the EN50126 standard has identified the five known human factors influencing the system development process. However, there is growing concern about the adequacy of existing standards and practices on managing these factors. The authors’ empirical studies in the Chinese railway signalling industry have shown that the outcome of different… CONTINUE READING
