Industrial Design & Human Factors Engineering
Industrial design: human focused, results driven
As an industrial design company, we are often asked “what is industrial design?” and “what is human factors engineering?” Industrial design is the creative aspect that concentrates on both the appearance and functionality of the product. Human factors engineering focuses on reducing human error and increasing productivity all while enhancing safety and physical conform. These two branches focus mainly on the interaction between the human and the product of interest rather than the function of the product itself. Essentially industrial design and human factors engineering is used to create designs that not only need to work flawlessly, but look and feel good too. While our mechanical engineering team focuses on function and repeatability, the industrial design side of our company focuses on form and usability.
