Knowledge is commonly socially constructed, through collaborative efforts towards shared objectives or by dialogues and challenges brought about by different persons' perspectives.

(2012): Transportation Research into Practice: A Multi-Agency Government Perspective. In: Proceedings of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society 2012 Annual Meeting 2012. pp. 2065-2069.
Safety is the top priority of the US Department of Transportation (DOT), with much of its $1B of annual research and development budget focused on this priority. Each organization within DOT, and its oversight origination, the National Transportation Safety Board, have research programs that independently and jointly aim to impact and address these current and emerging safety issues, many of which are rooted in human factors causes. This panel will provide insight into understanding these issues, and how research was designed to deliver fieldable results that produced tangible safety benefits.

Philips, Brian H., Rahman, Moin and Jarvinen, Jari (2001): Building a Human Factors "Knowledge Shelf" as a Collaborative Information Tool for Designers. In: Beaudouin-Lafon, Michel and Jacob, Robert J. K. (eds.) Proceedings of the ACM CHI 2001 Human Factors in Computing Systems Conference March 31 - April 5, 2001, Seattle, Washington, USA. pp. 98-103.
Human factors professionals have long been challenged with finding an effective way of communicating critical human factors design information to product designers. The authors have created a tool called a "Knowledge Shelf" for providing human factors information to designers in a very easy to use manner. The Knowledge Shelf is an interactive virtual library of information on human factors methodologies and data relevant to the specific product development needs of designers. Available through the Motorola Intranet, the Knowledge Shelf is designed to make human factors design information easily accessible. Providing these types of information to designers positively impacts the product development process, by facilitating more user-centered design practices.

Philips, Brian H. (1993): Developing Interactive Guidelines for Software User Interface Design: A Case Study. In: Proceedings of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society 37th Annual Meeting 1993. pp. 263-267.
There have been numerous methodologies, models, and tools created to support successful user-system interface (USI) design. One such tool is USI design guidelines, which is important for both software developers and human factors professionals in developing a good user interface. This paper discusses the creation of interactive USI design guidelines intended for software developers to use when creating applications in the Microsoft Windows graphical software environment. User-system interface design guidelines are an important part of the software design process and complement other human factors activities that support good USI design. Differences between printed and on-line guidelines documents suggest developing on-line guidelines to support the development of Windows-based GE Information Services applications. The content of the GE guidelines is tailored toward company applications, using examples of both good and bad user interface designs to illustrate guideline principles. The guidelines also include a sample application that incorporates the guidelines in its user interface. Components that contribute to the effectiveness of the guidelines, such as quality, time required to use, relevance, and complexity, are explored.

One of the new tools in human factors today is usability testing. More and more human factors professionals are conducting these tests to get accurate feedback from typical users to improve the usability, overall quality, and sales of their products. American Institutes for Research has been doing usability testing for five years now and have discussed testing with the directors of many labs. We have a body of knowledge and experience from which other professionals can benefit. In particular, we will be discussing data logging software and the functional requirements for it. In this paper we will describe the requirements for data logging software to log data, edit the data log, back up data and analyze data. Due to the scarcity of commercially available data logging packages (we know of only one at the present time) we found it necessary to write our own software for use in our usability lab and we know others are doing the same. Based on our experience of writing and using this software, we will describe the important functional requirements for data logging software.
