Human factors

Human Factors is a multi-disciplinary science that aims to ensure that the things we use, jobs that we perform, and environments within which we work, are fit for their intended purpose.

In a nutshell, “designing for human use”. The benefits of applying Human Factors are more usable, effective and safer systems. By helping to de-risk the design process and “get it right first time”, Human Factors also helps to lower overall project costs.
