Taking human factors into account early in a nuclear newbuild or modernisation project is one important part of ensuring safety and productivity of plant operation. Integrating ergonomic design into the engineering process helps in creating easy-to-use tools for the end users and diminishes the likelihood of human errors in plant operation and maintenance, but also reduces the need for costly changes to the designed solutions during and after the project.
We develop and use efficient tools and processes, such as fast AI guided requirement classification, design stage evaluations using dynamic simulators and VR environments, HFE assessment templates and design processes aligned with requirements set by nuclear authorities.
Our team has years of experience in control room and HMI design, and we are equipped with the skillsets to combine design with HFE activities.
- Initial clarifications and requirement specifications
- HFE programs and plans
- HFE analysis including e.g. operating experience analysis and task analysis
- Style guides
- Independent design reviews
- HFE verification and validation (V&V)
