Human Centered Design
As technology expands to dominate our use of time at work, at home, in schools and hospitals, in the global economy, and in military applications, the need for human centered design expands even more urgently. The BOHSI reports below document in myriad contexts that considering user needs, capabilities, and limitations from the design phase results in superior equipment, as well as systems, that better serve the people who use them.
