Human Factors Engineering is becoming an increasingly important regulatory requirement. In our experience however, human factors engineering is also a strategic product development and cost containment tool. Though there is a significant body of knowledge surrounding human factors, sometimes it can be unclear as to how to integrate human factors into a product development programme.
In response to this, we have designed a proven process that reduces the cost and risk of product development while improving product safety. You can view and download a digital copy of our publication on Integrating Human Factors Engineering into the Design Process and the accompanying poster online or request hard copies of the publication by emailing [email protected]
“To ensure a highly usable and safe product or truly effective system, the one proven way to accomplish it is through human-centred design.”
