A paper which presents a brief review of existing standards and practices in handling human factors during the system development process. The limitations of existing standards are then discussed in the context of the Chinese railway signalling industry. The risk based approach described in the Yellow book is then examined. The paper goes on to propose a human factors evaluation framework that refines the known human foactors into a set of finer-grained attributes as well as the applicable means of evaluation.
