The Relationship between Human Performance Technology and Automation


Automation deals mainly with machines. Human performance technology (HPT) deals with people. The most difficult challenges relative to automation will not be technological but will have to do with human purposes and human values. The purpose of the presentation will be to explore the relationship between human performance technology and automation.

About the Presentation

Automation deals mainly with machines. Human performance technology (HPT) deals with people. The most difficult challenges relative to automation will not be technological but will have to do with human purposes and human values. The purpose of the presentation will be to explore the relationship between human performance technology and automation.

The goal of automation is to reproduce repetitive actions that can be completed more effectively and more efficiently by a machine than by a human. Often considered repetitive and tedious, these tasks do not require problem solving, planning, or thinking. By reducing repetition, in the spirit of Gilbert’s leisurely theorems, an employee now has more opportunity to enjoy leisure. This leisure capitalizes the human skills for thinking and making decisions. The integration of automation in human work offers opportunities for improving human performance and productivity.

We will discuss and illustrate the relationship between automation and human performance technology. Stories of implementation of automation provide a backdrop to understanding the impact on performance, behavior, and accomplishment.



Learning objectives

 Participants will be able to:

  • Describe the level, extent, and degree of automation

  • Determine the worth of automating a job task

  • Assess the opportunities for leisure by human performers in occurrences of automation

 

Tools/applications

USA principle of automation, Gilbert’s Worthy Performance Theorems
