Human Factors Analysis of Pipeline Monitoring and Control Operations

This project will systematically apply human factors research and development techniques in meeting two objectives. First, the study will establish an understanding of those human factors that adversely affect the safety, reliability, and efficiency of pipeline monitoring and control operations. Second, guidelines will be developed that can be used by industry to identify human factors problem areas in their operations and develop continuous improvement strategies to improve the effectiveness of pipeline monitoring and control operations.
