You work for a large aviation company in the design section. In a high-level meeting today, your bosses have gathered all the design engineers together to discuss the fact that our aviation partners have reported an alarming increase in cockpit errors, flight crew mistakes, and other human performance problems in every aspect of industry operations in the past year. Customers are frustrated, management is unhappy, and this is trickling back to you, the design engineers, to see if you can offer some solutions for improvement based on your knowledge of the industry, design, ergonomics, and human factors.
Select a design problem, and describe how ergonomics and/or human factors in design, technology, or automation may help to mitigate/reduce/remedy this problem. Provide data from a scholarly source or related case to back up this proposal. Finally, explain how you will implement this proposal, track the success measures, and include a feedback loop and timeline.
