Interface Analysis / Usernomics can apply human factors expertise to the development of your idea or the design of your product.
When designing hardware or software, Human Factors must be considered during the planning stage and throughout the project. Too often, Human Factors is considered only at the end-stages of product design. which results in either costly changes or reluctance to change the design.
Applying Human Factors early in the process allows you to make changes and increase the learning speed, efficiency and comfort level with a product, which translates into product acceptance and use.
