It’s not enough to design and develop a system for humans unless you also consider the environment, constraints, and situations in which your users will operate. We do this by following scientifically-relevant and emerging concepts that include both basic and applied research and evaluation methods. We pride ourselves on understanding and implementing solutions to human factors issues in both laboratory and real environments.
We continually work to expand our understanding of an area of research by finding broader applications of current knowledge and tools. In so doing, we have kept professional and collaborative relationships with the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society (HFES), the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA), the Applied Experimental and Engineering Psychology Division of the American Psychological Association (Division 21), the Association for Computing Machinery Special Interest Group on Computer Human Interaction (SIGCHI), and the Usability Professionals’ Association (UPA).
