Human factors engineering (HFE) integrates human considerations into the design of equipment, systems, and facilities. This is done by performing and applying methods such as human behavioral research, functional and task analyses, human risk analysis, human-centered design, engineering psychology, ergonomics and other disciplines.
By incorporating HFE into the design of systems, customers can achieve:
We’re committed to the cost-effective design of equipment, systems and workplace environments to minimize human error and optimize human efficiency and safety. Our HFE team has decades of experience in the design and evaluation of military and commercial ships, offshore structures, transportation systems, manufacturing facilities, military systems and power generation plants.
While our HFE capabilities can be applied in many different ways, we typically support HFE requirements in the following areas:
Our Human Factors Engineering and Ergonomics expertise provides real, measurable improvement across numerous metrics. Particularly relevant to specialized, dangerous, or complex operations and tasks, the integration of HFE/Ergonomics is key component of delivering safe, efficient and productive systems.
