Summary Systemic-structural activity theory (SSAT) is a relatively new unified framework for the study efficiency of human performance and process, equipment and software design. This book presents new recently obtained data in the field of SSAT that can be used in the study of human performance. With increased cognitive demands to task performance, psychological method of study of human activity play an important role. New principles and revised methods for the study of human work are supplemented by practical examples in manufacturing, building construction industry, aviation, and human-computer interaction systems. Work Activity Studies Within the Framework of Ergonomics, Psychology, and Economics presents a comprehensive unified psychological theory that can be utilized as a general approach to the study of human work not only for ergonomists, psychologists, but also for economists that study the efficiency of human performance
