Ergonomics
Ergonomics (or human factors) is the scientific discipline concerned with
the understanding of interactions among humans and other elements of a
system
the profession that applies theory, principles, data and methods to design in
order to optimize human well-being and overall system performance.
Domains:
Cognitive Ergonomics
Cognitive ergonomics is concerned with mental processes, such as
perception, memory, reasoning, and motor response.
The relevant topics include:
mental workload
decision-making
skilled performance
human-computer interaction,
human reliability
work stress
training
as these may relate to human-system
Design.

Human Computer Interaction(HCI)
HCI involves the study, planning, and design of the interaction between human
(users) and computers.
Supporting knowledge on both the computer and the human
Computer side - techniques in computer graphics operating systems,
programming languages and development environments - relevant
Human side - communication theory, graphic and industrial design disciplines,
linguistics, social sciences, cognitive psychology and human factors such as
computer user satisfaction - relevant

Interaction occurs at the user interface which includes both hardware and
software

Need of cognitive
ergonomics

The way people perceive and act has direct


implications on the design of the objects and
environment that they use
Mind is as comfortable at work as the body
If physical surroundings reflect and support their
natural cognitive tendencies,
Less errors
performance & productivity -positive boost
