HUMAN FACTORS AND ERGONOMICS Connecting human capabilities with good design

Human Factors and Ergonomics (HFE) is the scientific discipline concerned with the understanding of interactions among humans and other elements of a system, and the profession that applies theory, principles, data and methods to design in order to optimise human wellbeing and overall system performance. HFE helps to harmonise things that interact with people in terms of people’s needs, abilities and limitations. (The International Ergonomics Association).
