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.
