    Project Details

    Description

    Safety-critical systems are particularly difficult to evaluate because the work domains are complex and critical incidents may pose requirements very different from those of day-to-day operation. This project aims to investigate evaluation methods, such as thinking aloud, in relation to evaluation of safety-critical systems in order to improve the reliability of the methods, scrutinize their validity, and suggest improvements of the methods.
