The Human Factors Research Group has a long standing reputation for it’s research into complex systems, including but not limited to the following applications:
- understanding the micro, meso and macro elements of sociotechnical systems
- designing for the whole system and the varying interactions that will occur within it between users, technology, organisation structures, communications and workplace design
- understanding performance, risk and safety within a system
- exploring the influence of culture and human behaviour on the way a system operates
The experience of the group draws upon their work in different domains and industrial contexts e.g. transport (rail and aviation), power, manufacturing, etc.
