Human Factors Package

Ensure safe and user-friendly product designs.

Is your design team applying knowledge of human abilities, characteristics and limitations?

Want a one-stop source for technical knowledge on human factors and ergonomics?

The Human Factors and Ergonomics (HF/E) field has growth in size and influence as direct man-machine interaction increases in both frequency and complexity. Computer-based control systems, used in everything from military aircraft to buildings to coffee makers, have created a need for product designs that consider the physicality and behaviors of human beings.

The IHS Markit Human Factors Package is the ultimate one-stop source for technical information and guidance on human factors and ergonomics, pulling together the latest standards and reference works from the world’s most respected publishers and leading authorities.
