additional remarks The human factor is often mentioned as the major cause for unspecified functioning of technical systems or even serious events like accidents or incidents. The lecture will first describe the functional relationships of human and technical reliability as well as the causes why human influences are of high importance today. Based on these considerations, methods will be described how human failures can be analyzed, assessed and avoided by increasing the total reliability of the whole system. Further on, methods will be described, how event can be analyzed regarding human factor issues. The methods for assessment as well as for evaluation of events are demonstrated with real events happened in the fields of process-industry and transport (aviation, traffic).
