Human factors and ergonomics

Human factors and ergonomics
Human factors and ergonomics (HF&E), also known as comfort design, functional design, and user-friendly systems,[1] is the practice of designing products, systems or processes to take proper account of the interaction between them and the people who use them. The field has seen contributions from numerous disciplines, such as psychology, engineering, biomechanics, industrial design, physiology and anthropometry. In essence, it is the study of designing equipment and devices that fit the human body and its cognitive abilities. The two terms "human factors" and "ergonomics" are essentially synonymous.[2][3][4] The International Ergonomics Association defines ergonomics or human factors as follows:[5] HF&E is employed to fulfill the goals of occupational health and safety and productivity. Human factors and ergonomics is concerned with the "fit" between the user, equipment and their environments. Etymology[edit] Domains of specialization[edit] New terms are being generated all the time. Books Related:  ergonomie

Check list selon les 10 principes de Jacob Nielsen La technique d’évaluation heuristique est une variation des inspections d’utilisabilité où les spécialistes jugent en profondeur si chaque partie des interfaces suivent les principes d’utilisabilité. Pour appliquer ce type d’évaluation il faut suivre trois stratégies : reconnaître le système en concentrant l’attention sur les tâches les plus communes et importantes ; se maintenir au courant des critères et recommandations ergonomiques appartenant aux composantes du système; réaliser une balayage critique du système et des connaissances ergonomiques disponibles. Pour Nielsen, l’utilisabilité possède de multiples composantes et est associée traditionnellement à quatre attributs : apprentissage, efficience, gestion d’erreurs et satisfaction. Les 10 principes : Visibilité de statut du système Le système devrait maintenir l’utilisateur toujours informé sur sa localisation à travers des marquages appropriées dans un temps raisonnable. Correspondance entre le système et le monde réel Sources :

Usability Usability is the ease of use and learnability of a human-made object. The object of use can be a software application, website, book, tool, machine, process, or anything a human interacts with. A usability study may be conducted as a primary job function by a usability analyst or as a secondary job function by designers, technical writers, marketing personnel, and others. It is widely used in consumer electronics, communication, and knowledge transfer objects (such as a cookbook, a document or online help) and mechanical objects such as a door handle or a hammer. Usability includes methods of measuring usability, such as needs analysis[1] and the study of the principles behind an object's perceived efficiency or elegance. In human-computer interaction and computer science, usability studies the elegance and clarity with which the interaction with a computer program or a web site (web usability) is designed. Introduction[edit] Definition[edit] Usability is a non-functional requirement.

audit ergonomique Aesthetics "Aesthetician" redirects here. For a cosmetologist who specializes in the study of skin care, see Esthetician. More specific aesthetic theory, often with practical implications, relating to a particular branch of the arts is divided into areas of aesthetics such as art theory, literary theory, film theory and music theory. An example from art theory is aesthetic theory as a set of principles underlying the work of a particular artist or artistic movement: such as the Cubist aesthetic.[6] Etymology[edit] The word aesthetic is derived from the Greek αἰσθητικός (aisthetikos, meaning "esthetic, sensitive, sentient"), which in turn was derived from αἰσθάνομαι (aisthanomai, meaning "I perceive, feel, sense").[7] The term "aesthetics" was appropriated and coined with new meaning in the German form Æsthetik (modern spelling Ästhetik) by Alexander Baumgarten in 1735. Aesthetics and the philosophy of art[edit] Aesthetics is for the artist as Ornithology is for the birds.— Barnett Newman[8][9]

Photographing People When You Travel -- National Geographic Photograph by Catherine Karnow National Geographic, National Geographic Traveler Photographing people in a foreign country presents a specific set of challenges, among them increased anxiety, language barriers, and unfamiliar customs. But when you’re abroad, as at home, it’s most important that you gain the trust of your subjects. This is what will allow you to photograph people as they are in their shops, their favorite cafés, and even their homes. Always emit a positive vibe and approach your subjects not as a camera but as a person—let your smiling face be the first thing they see. Before I travel to a foreign country, I always learn a handful of complimentary words like "beautiful" and "wonderful."

UX, bon sens et logique - UX Metric La conduite d’ateliers de co-conception est un jalon incontournable et indispensable d’un projet digital. Ces ateliers présentent deux principaux avantages : Ils permettent de fluidifier la gestion du projet grâce à une collaboration plus étroite entre le client et l’équipe de réalisation. Cela limite les incompréhensions et donc, les itérations. Ce dernier point pose la question suivante : en tant que concepteurs de services digitaux, avons-nous une connaissance suffisante des utilisateurs (réelle ou supposée) pour pouvoir nous dispenser de les impliquer, que ce soit en présentiel (focus groups, tests utilisateurs, interviews, tri de cartes, etc.) ou à distance (analytics, enquêtes, A/B testing, etc.) ? Afin de tenter de répondre à cette question, nous vous proposons quelques données issues d’expériences que nous avons conduites dans le cadre de cours ou conférences que nous sommes parfois amenés à animer. Le bon sens suffit-il à concevoir une bonne UX ? Expérience 1 Oui / Non Résultats

Economics For a topical guide to this subject, see Outline of economics. Economics is the social science that studies the behavior of individuals, households, and organizations (called economic actors, players, or agents), when they manage or use scarce resources, which have alternative uses, to achieve desired ends. Agents are assumed to act rationally, have multiple desirable ends in sight, limited resources to obtain these ends, a set of stable preferences, a definite overall guiding objective, and the capability of making a choice. The traditional concern of economics is to gain an understanding of the processes that govern the production, distribution and consumption of goods and services in an exchange economy.[3] An agent may have purposes or ends, such as reducing or protecting individuals from crime, on which he or she wants to spend resources. Definitions There are a variety of modern definitions of economics. J. Economics is a study of man in the ordinary business of life. Microeconomics

Ý kiến: 'Flappy Bird và sự 'lo quá xa' của người Việt' | Techdaily Like Blog để cập nhật thông tin công nghệ hữu ích từ Việt Nam & toàn Thế giới! TCCL+ | Đăng ngày 08/02/2014 – Những ngày đầu năm 2014, cả thế giới bất ngờ phát sốt với chú chim Flappy Bird đầy khó chịu. Hàng triệu lượt tải, hàng nghìn comment stress cực độ, hàng trăm clip hài hước thể hiện sự điên tiết với chú chim quái đản. Điều này làm tôi nhớ đến giai điệu Gangnam Style từng làm mưa làm gió một thời. Và quả thật chúng có khá nhiều điểm chung: sản phẩm đơn giản, có chút gì đó hài hước, ngớ ngẩn, tác giả là người không nổi tiếng. Tối giản chứ không phải đơn giản Rất nhiều người cho rằng Flappy Bird là một sự ăn may, kiểu “chó ngáp phải ruồi”.

Sachez pour votre culture personnelle que les heuristiques de Nielsen sont certainement les plus utilisées par les ergonomes et designers. Les heuristiques de Nielsen se composent de 10 critères, les voici : Critère 1 : L’état du système est visible Le système doit toujours tenir informé l’utilisateur de ce qui se passe, de là où il se situe dans le parcours. Critère 2 : Le système correspond à mon modèle mental Oui ! À vous de jouer !
