Consequence analysis of human unreliability during railway traffic control F. Vanderhaegen* & B. Telle^ "Laboratoire d'Automatique et de Mecanique Industrielles et Humaines (LAMIH), University of Valenciennes - URA 1775 CNRS, Le Mont Houy BP 311 - 59304 Valenciennes Cedex France Email: {vanderhaegen, telle}@univ-valenciennes.fr Transports et leur Securite - Evaluation des Systemes de Transport Automatises et leur Securite) 20 rue Elisee Reclus - 59650 Villeneuve d'Ascq, France Abstract The paper presents a descriptive method to analyse consequences of human unreliability. Unreliability is seen as combining three behavioural factors: acquisition related failure, problem solving related failure, and action related failure. The method is divided into four steps: the functional analyses, the context identification, the task state identification and the consequence analysis of the human unreliability. The functional analysis step aims at determining interactions between the requ
