Design for ranges of optimum human performance capability; we provide skilled consulting service to help industrial design and engineering professionals consider a range of human factors - cognitive, behaviour, and physical attributes of a work population - to ensure best practice design consideration according to task performance requirements; we advise, also, for after-market design evaluation of plant and equipment according to task performance requirements, reference to relevant ISO standards; These services support cognitive and system-based engineering process. We employ techniques such as Design-OMAT: Design for Operability and Maintainability Analysis Technique.
This is a unique process whereby we facilitate mapping and analysis of cognitive decision making and systemic demands with regard to knowledge, skills, and abilities work requirements – task analysis with demand requirements of situation awareness, distraction tolerance, judgment, reasoning, problem solving, pattern recognition, response times, sustained task vigilance, concentration, memory, energy management or fatigue resilience, and similar. This can help in work redesign, equipment interface, human factors design process, reliability engineering, incident analysis, or recruitment strategy. We consider distributed situation awareness: what interactions occur among workers, machines, equipment, and within systems? We may ask workers to narrate their experiences to add to well-informed insight into decision-making.
