Human Factors

“Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler”

Human Factors Engineering and Ergonomics (HF & E) deal with designing systems, products and processes taking into consideration the human interaction between them and the users. Human Factor specialist is responsible for the “people part” in the design of complex systems. Human Factors assessments ensure that the designs of complex systems are optimised for their users and minimise the potential for human error.

Intellex has access to specialists who provide integrated human factors design input from concept through to detailed design, to ensure that user requirements are understood and considered throughout the design. The HF specialists deal with the integration human factors into the design of systems in such a way that they match the abilities and limitations of humans. We help to assess the fit between the people and the systems by providing human factors inputs to engineers and designers at each stage of development to ensure that systems are designed ergonomically.
