Abstract

The inspection process tends to be less that 100% reliable especially with human inspectors. Despite the advent of automated inspection system, humans will continue to be part of the inspection process for the conceivable future as inspectors or process control operators. To improve the inspection performance and ultimately inspection quality, a need to study human performance and identify interventions/strategies to improve human performance in inspection. Four closely linked papers related to human performance in inspection such as visual inspection of circuit boards, training of humans to be systematic inspectors; inspection in process control and effect of pacing and explicit costs on human decision-making performance in inspection are presented.
