About the event
In this webinar, we discuss how to apply human factors standards to the design of complex systems.
You’ll learn about an industry-based use case, illustrating how the USA’s Federal Aviation Administration Human Factors Design Standard (FAA HFDS) was tailored to inform the design of a new air traffic management system. We also use this real-world example as a basis to explore the benefits, pitfalls and challenges of using standards to influence the design of complex systems.
We identify lessons learnt that could be useful to practitioners in refining this approach to further improve the application of human factors to the design of systems.
