Whether used for aviation, manufacturing, oil and gas extraction, energy distribution, nuclear or fossil fuel power generation, surveillance or security, all control rooms share two common features. The people operating them are often remote from the processes that they are monitoring and controlling and the operations work 24/7. The twin demands of remote and continuous operation place special considerations on the design of central control rooms. Human Factors in the Design and Evaluation of Central Control Room Operations provides an analysis of Human Factors and Ergonomics in this complex area and the implications for control room staff. This information contained within this book can then be used to design, assessed and evaluate control rooms.
Taking an integrated approach to Human Factors and Ergonomics in the control room environment, the book presents fourteen human factors topics: competencies, training, procedures, communications, workload, automation, supervision, shift patterns, control room layout, SCADA interfaces, alarms, control room environment, human error, and safety culture. Although there are many resources available on each of these topics, this book the information together under one cover with a focus on central control room operations. Each chapter is self-contained and can be read in any order, as the information is required.
Digital media are revolutionising design, both as a tool in design practice and as a way of thinking about design products, processes and systems.
Digital Design outlines the rules and patterns that underlie digital media and clearly explains how they improve design outcomes. But Digital Design is about breaking and bending the rules as well as following them. The book reveals how a combination of systematic thinking (understanding and using rules and patterns) and intuitive thinking (adapting and inventing for specific situations) can enhance the work of a digital designer.
Written for both experienced and novice designers, Digital Design is superbly illustrated with over 200 black and white and colour images. With its unique combination of analysis and how-to, the book is inspiring for students of visual effects, animation, game, website and architectural design, and product and graphic design in a broader sense.
From Azzedine Alaïa, Cristóbal Balenciaga, and Coco Chanel, to Alexander McQueen, Yves Saint Laurent, and Vivienne Westwood, a century’s worth of fashion greats from the permanent collection of The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology are celebrated in this limitededition volume. Photographs of over 500 garments selected from the Museum’s permanent collection illuminate each of the featured designers, while texts by the curators explain why each designer is important in fashion history and what is special about the individual pieces featured.
In her introductory essay, director and chief curator Valerie Steele writes about the rise of the fashion museum, and the emergence of the fashion exhibition as a popular and controversial phenomenon; and both Steele and contributor Suzy Menkes provide a history of this museum’s role in the world of fashion scholarship and preservation.

“In the spirit of the devil-may-care elegance of John Frankenheimer´s 1966 movie Grand Prix” (Kriemler), the race cars whizzing by on silk crêpe found a suitable patroness: H.S.H.
