  • Systems Thinking: Bridging the Gap Between Human Factors & Engineering

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits Includes a Live Web Event on 10/15/2021 at 11:00 AM (EDT)

    What this webinar will present is a practical methodology that melds together Systems Thinking and Human Factors allowing for much improved communication and integration between the disparate discipline areas within Engineering Design.

    Designed systems are becoming increasingly complex in their development / operation and one mechanism of dealing with such complexity is through the application of Systems Thinking. Systems Thinking is being increasingly employed in Engineering Design as a mechanism of dealing with increasingly complex problems.

    Human Factors is by definition, a systems discipline. The concepts of abstraction, interactions and emergent properties are deeply embedded within Human Factors. Given the increased use of Systems Thinking in Engineering Design, one would think that this would lend itself to simpler consideration and integration of Human Factors. However, Human Factors is still often poorly implemented on Engineering Design Projects.

    What this webinar will present is a practical methodology that melds together Systems Thinking and Human Factors allowing for much improved communication and integration between the disparate discipline areas within Engineering Design.

    This webinar is categorized under the Health, Safety, Environment, and Sustainability technical discipline.
