Human Factors Integration Defence Technology Centre wins annual award
Cranfield University has announced that, as part of the Human Factors Integration Defence Technology Centre (HFI DTC) consortium, it has today been presented with the Ergonomics Society President’s Medal for its significant contribution to original and applied research in Human Factors Integration. The consortium, comprises industry and academia and is headed on behalf of the UK’s Ministry of Defence (MOD) by Aerosystems International, Cranfield University, The University of Birmingham, Brunel University, MBDA, Lockheed Martin UK and SEA ltd.

The Medal is recognition by professionals in the areas of ergonomics and applied psychology for HFI DTC consortium’s work in undertaking original and applied research, the methodology or application of knowledge within the field of ergonomics.

As part of the consortium Cranfield’s main contributions have been in the area of education and training. Cranfield’s research has addressed topics such as e-learning, decision-making training and training effectiveness.

Human Factors is an Engineering discipline that must be integrated with other Engineering disciplines such as Systems Engineering and Integration/Test to be effective. The HFI DTC was formed with the overarching goal to reduce whole life costs through the more efficient use of equipment and personnel.

The participants worked together to generate and enhance the technology vital to the delivery of future UK Defence capabilities. In its short period of operation, the HFI DTC has become the primary MoD focus for Human Factors issues related to the procurement process. To date, over 100 HFI deliverables have been delivered to the customer. The scientific output of the HFI DTC since its inception has been quite prodigious and further demonstrates the quality of its work.

Don Harris, Researcher in Human Factors Engineering at Cranfield commented: “It is always a great honour to have your achievements acknowledged by your professional peers. This award recognises the quality of work and thought by everyone in the HFI DTC team both at Cranfield and across the consortium as a whole. It was a true team effort.”
