The collection of human performance data from plant simulators is receiving renewed attention by the Human Reliability Analysis (HRA) community to improve the empirical basis of our models. However, gaps remain on how to incorporate the data into HRA models.

The present Ph.D. work aims at developing new quantitative models, based on Bayesian statistical methods, traceably integrating simulator data and expert judgment in the production of human failure probability values and bounds.
