Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Despite the widespread use of push-buttons as important controls on industrial equipment, little has been written about the human factors involved in their use. In a previous paper (Moore, 1974) the tactile and kinaesthetic aspects of push-buttons were examined. The purpose of the present paper is to explain the wider ergonomic aspects of push-buttons in the context of operational requirements and engineering constraints. In addition to describing individual push-button design, the importance of panel layout and position are stressed.
