Abstract

Understanding when, why, where, and how to use human factors methods is a key skill for human factors practitioners. Experienced professionals are very skilled at selecting methods appropriate to the task at hand, but the skill is a result of years of exposure. The current study examines the value of organizing human factors methods into a framework that relates and integrates information in meaningful ways to aid non-experts in selecting appropriate methods. The product design cycle is proposed as a viable framework for addressing this issue, though it is only one of many possible frameworks. Recommendations for future work include the development of additional frameworks targeting other audiences.
