Sample text

Cranks are most suitable where a wide range of adjustment is needed, because they can be turned quicker than a wheel or a knob. Handwheels should only be used if considerable force must be transmitted. To sum up. The critical moment in the operation of an equipment is when some decision is taken, and as a result some control is used. The reliability of the equipment is bound up with the decision the operator makes, the actual control he or she operates and how it is used, and these can all be affected by the operator's personal comfort and working conditions, in addition to his or her interpretation of a display, and the layout and design of controls.

Where there may be difficulty in identifying a part such as in electronic equipment, the part must be clearly marked in a place which is easily visible. If colour coding is used, it must be remembered that about one in seven persons are sufficiently colour-blind to be unable to distinguish nearly identical shades, or dull colours. Colours must not fade, they must be used consistently, and whenever possible a standard code should be used, details of the code being displayed on the equipment. The eye finds it difficult to identify small areas of colour, so that the use of, for instance, a colour thread running through cable insulation is unsatisfactory.

01 Radio and TV sets Room temperatures. 00 Military equipment High temperatures High humidity Salt laden atmosphere Shock, vibration, etc. 1, page 8, shows that during the early failure period of components, the failure rate is considerably higher than during the useful life period. If components and sub-assemblies were incorporated directly from the production line into a complex equipment which was then shipped to the customer, an unacceptably high failure rate might be experienced during the first few hundred hours.
