The discipline of human factors and ergonomics is so broad and diverse, that at times, I find it challenging to adequately convey an overview to someone new to it in a timely manner.  Thus, besides providing a general definition and discussing some relevant examples, I’ve started talking more about the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society, including its 23 Technical Groups.  They include:

  • Aerospace Systems
  • Aging
  • Augmented Cognition
  • Cognitive Engineering and Decision Making
  • Communications
  • Computer Systems
  • Education
  • Environmental Design
  • Forensics Professional
  • Health Care
  • Human Performance
  • Individual Differences in Performance
  • Industrial Ergonomics
  • Internet
  • Macroergonomics
  • Perception and Performance
  • Product Design
  • Safety
  • Surface Transportation
  • Systems Development
  • Test and Evaluation
  • Training
  • Virtual Environments

You can learn more from their descriptions or by visiting their individual websites.
