This paper presents the findings of research relating to the specification of a new human factors report, conducted as part of the work requirements for the Human Integration into the Lifecycle of Aviation Systems project, sponsored by the European Commission. Specifically, it describes the proposed concept for a unique report, which will form the basis for all operational and safety reports completed by flight crew. This includes all mandatory and optional reports. Critically, this form is… 
Day-to-day performance management in a small regional airport and management of change for safer operations
The tool has been built using a participatory approach around a shared and documented understanding of the key activities the organization needs to be able to perform safely and efficiently and tackles all the areas needed such as performance monitoring, reporting, task support, procedure documentation and proactive risk assessment.

How to assess team performance in terms of control: a protocol based on cognitive systems engineering
The results show that the protocol can be used to identify differences in team performance and gives empirical validity to COCOM in that the loss of control in emergencies corresponds to an opportunistic or a scrambled control mode.
Achieving impact through human factors research
Achieving impact – change in the real world – through human factors research involves developing the right theoretical and conceptual models that give leverage over the problem space, and developing
