Write a module case study applying the SHELL Model:

Once again go to the NTSB Web site. Analyze and evaluate a NTSB Final Accident Report; find a report that provides examples of failures in the four model interfaces that were concluded to be either causal or contributory to the accident. You must find a report that exemplifies the following interfaces:Liveware – SoftwareLiveware – HardwareLiveware – EnvironmentLiveware – Liveware

For the accident:

  • Summarize the overall circumstances of the accident.
  • Explain in detail the accident circumstances related to the appropriate model interface.
  • Relate and apply your knowledge of human physiology and psychology, human performance and performance limitations, and human error, as appropriate, to those circumstances.
  • Explain how those circumstances demonstrate that model interface.

The Case Study should be two pages in length, double-spaced, consist of a title (accurately reflective of the topic), an introductory paragraph, one to three body paragraphs, and a summary paragraph, include information obtained from primary or secondary sources beyond those listed in the Module, include proper APA 6th edition citations and references (with the references listed on a separate last page).
