Precept – Except for (a) risks from decisions based on cost-benefit analysis and (b) risks that are unidentifiable in advance (e.g., those associated with discovery and invention) – except for these risks, all losses to an enterprise are attributable to human error in the design of processes, including the design of the hardware used in the processes, and in the implementation of the processes.

Human Design and Operator Error Detection and Prevention Methods, Tools and Technologies with Practical Case Studies & Examples: an interactive NJIT ASQ Chapter workshop presentation

A human error means that something has been done that was not intended by the actor (meaning neither by the designer nor by the operator of a process, or procedure; meaning the same here).
A human error is a deviation from intention, expectation or desirability. Continue reading October Section Meeting – Human Design and Operator Error Detection and Prevention Methods
