The concept "Human (H)-Machine (M)-Environment (E) coupling" is put forward, and the connotative meaning and representation of the hazards owning to coupling is represented. Based on Process Breakdown Structure (PBS), the method characterizing H-M-E coupling in operational process is put forward, and a multi-view model for integrated analysis is established. The model describes an operational process from 9 perspectives including H, M, E, H-H, M-M, H-M, M- H, E-H, E-M. It provides pragmatic technical means to explore interaction or interconnection among factors of human, machine and environment.
