Manufacturers who treat human factors engineering as a checkbox to be addressed at the end of the product development cycle are missing a huge opportunity. By embedding human factors iteratively into the development process, manufacturers can identify and eliminate potential usability issues before they lead to costly design delays and rework. Integrated human factors work also drives better user experience decisions early in the development process, leading to a better and more successful product.
In this six-part series, Tressa J. Daniels, global director of human factors engineering at Teleflex, Inc., will address the key components of a successful, integrated human factors approach. Register today to learn how to unleash the ROI of rethinking your approach to human factors.

Her expertise is in user interaction design, ethnographic research and executing human factors analyses of consumer and medical products, including infusion pumps, oral medication dispensing systems, migraine machines and DNA Sequencers. Formerly, Tressa worked at Becton Dickinson, Illumina, CareFusion, HP, Intel and Xerox and was a Human Factors instructor at Woodbury University in Burbank, CA and is also a member of AAMI Faculty in Human Factors in Medical Device Design. She is a member of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society (HFES) as well as the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI). She serves on AAMI’s Human Factors Engineering Standards Committee as well as hosts regular Webinars for AAMI. Tressa holds a Bachelors Degree in Psychology as well as a Masters in Human Factors Engineering and Applied Experimental Psychology.
Our Human Factors Virtual Short Course is designed as a six-part series and each session will build on the previous presentations. However, if you are familiar with Human Factors and looking for an update on only a specific topic, registration is available for individual sessions. If you have never trained in human factors engineering, consider this virtual short course as your introductory overview and be one step ahead on future human factors training or certifications.
Sessions in the series will take place Tuesdays and Thursdays at 1:00 PM ET beginning July 14 and concluding July 30. All sessions will be recorded and recordings are made available to all registrants following the presentations, meaning you do not have to be available to participate in all six sessions live to benefit from the complete course. Please direct any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Human Factors Overview
Tuesday, July 14, 2020 | 1:00 - 2:30 PM
Presents an overarching look at what human factors is, why we need it and what activities and deliverables are expected within each phase of the product development process. Covers regulatory standards and expectations and outlines validation testing and best practices. Register for this session.
Ethnographic Research Methods for User Needs Gathering
Thursday, July 16, 2020 | 1:00 - 2:30 PM
Identifying User Needs early in the product development process is critical to designing the right product for the right user. This presentation will cover the different types of early exploratory research teams can utilize to identify user needs that will then filter into product requirements and design specifications. Register for this session.
Family of Formatives
Tuesday, July 21, 2020 | 1:00 - 2:30 PM
Most teams rely only on 1:1 usability testing with end users to understand design issues. The presentation outlines all options for understanding usability issues. Both Empirical and Analytical methods of usability inspection will be discussed. Register for this session.
Designing for Usability
Thursday, July 23, 2020 | 1:00 - 2:00 PM
Inherent safety by design is critical in medical devices. Taking into account usability heuristics and best practice design principles can guide and ensure your product is inherently usable which can increase safe use. Register for this session.
The ROI of Human Factors
Thursday, July 30, 2020 | 1:00 - 2:00 PM
Often we are asked to justify the cost of Human Factors Engineering activities. This presentation will help you demonstrate to stakeholders the importance of human factors during the product development lifecycle – and as a result showing cost savings that can affect your bottom line.
