Who we are

IGORs HUMAN FACTORS Capability

IGOR provides the advice and hands-on resources that understand the properties of human capability within technological systems.


IGOR Human Factors practitioners understand how to analyse the Human Factors issues or human capabilities and limitations that effect complex systems in order to optimise those systems. 


A typical Human Factors analysis would draw on one or more of the following components;

  • Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) or Man-Machine Interface (MMI) issues
  • Human Factors Integration /Engineering or application of Human Factors knowledge into the design and development of systems and services
  • Human Factors Risk Analysis – Identifying the “show stoppers” or critical points for humans within a system
  • User evaluations within systems – Determining how effective people are at using a system and identifying the systems susceptibility to human error 
  • Systems Analysis – Identifying the critical issues within human-technology systems
  • Task Analysis – Articulating the steps taken in completing jobs
  • Human Performance Modelling – representing human performance within a system through computer simulation

 

"The IGOR team have done their job when the Human Factors that enhance or reduce system capability have been identified."

 

Introducing rigorous Human Factors analysis offers significant cost benefits optimising design and use, but most importantly insures your staff; the users, against unnecessary risk.
