IAA can apply Human Factors expertise to the development of your idea or the design of your product.
When designing hardware or software, Human Factors must be considered during the planning stage and throughout the project. Too often, Human Factors is considered only at the end-stages of product design, which results in either costly changes or reluctance to change the design.
Applying Human Factors early in the process allows you to make changes and increase the learning speed, efficiency and comfort level with a product, which translates into product acceptance and use.
Our user-centered Human Factors process can include a heuristic evaluation, contextual inquiry, usability testing, product design, or instructional design. We make sure to include all methods necessary to ensure that the final product is usable, well-accepted by end-users, and a leader in the marketplace.
We can assist your company by applying a Human Factors perspective to your concept, product or service.
