Human Factors

"Safe and efficient working practices are paramount in aviation. The Human Factors team is dedicated to this approach through the targeted investigation of operators and the development of suitable methods for supporting the workforce."

Dr. Ruth Häusler, Team Leader Human Factors

Field of Expertise

With the increasing complexity of systems used in aviation, the complexity of tasks and requirements for people is also increasing. Therefore, this department is concerned with the observation of human performance in various branches of aviation and the development of training tools and methods to support and relieve people in their work. For this purpose, subjective (surveys, observations, etc.) as well as objective (e.g. eye tracking, head tracking, actigraphy, pulse measurement, reaction measurements) measurement methods adapted to the respective work area are used in close cooperation with operators, the management, safety specialists and engineers. To enhance safety, the knowledge gained flows directly into the design, guidelines, procedures and training. As a result, the "Human Factors" department offers direct and adapted solutions to problems as well as practical implications.
