Human Factors and Ergonomics in Business and Technology

I just attended a symposium entitled “Human Factors and Ergonomics in Business and Technology“at the De La Salle University in Manila and it was hosted by the Human Factors and Ergonomics Center (HFEC).

The symposium had four main talks and were given by the HFEC’s research faculty:

  1. Human Factors in Business and Technology by Dr. Rosemary Seva
  2. Improving Business Competitive Advantage Through Ergonomics by Ms. Alma Maria Jennifer Gutierrez
  3. Integrating Usability in Web Design and Development by Mr. Ronaldo Polancos
  4. The Wisdom of Usability Testing and Evaluation by Ms. Jazmin Tangsoc

The symposium had only a few attendees as it was by invitation only, but the discussions were lively as the audience was composed of medical practitioners, developers, usability professionals, and government officials. Another thing that made the symposium interesting is the range of topics– while I went there to see the center’s facilities for usability testing and evaluation, I learned a lot about ergonomics. :)

HFEC director Dr. Rosemary Seva said that the center plans to hold quarterly symposiums to increase the public awareness on the presence of human factors research in the Philippines.

This is definitely a great move in developing the usability community here in the country and this could be the precursor to the establishment of a Manila chapter of the Usability Professionals’ Association. 😀
