HCD for interactive services, products and systems

The principles of human-centred design and the related activities have not changed substantially since ISO 13407 was produced and have been validated by ten years of application.

The human-centered approach to design as described in ISO 9241 complements existing systems design approaches. It can be incorporated in approaches as diverse as object-oriented, waterfall and rapid application development.

Rationale for adopting human-centered approach

Using a human-centered approach to design and development has substantial economic and social benefits for users, employers and suppliers.

Highly usable systems and products tend to be more successful both technically and commercially. In some areas, such as consumer products, purchasers will pay a premium for well-designed products and systems.

Support and help-desk costs are reduced when users can understand and use products without additional assistance. In most countries, employers and suppliers have legal obligations to protect users from risks to their health, and safety and human-centered methods can reduce these risks (e.g. musculoskeletal risks).

Human-centered design is focused on interactive rather than passive systems, anything that a human may interact with regardless of technology, process or communication. Humans rather than users are now the important centre of consideration as many humans have lost their importance and opportunity to gain efficiencies by projects only focusing on one user group, the end users.

Human-centered design is an approach to interactive services, products and systems, research, design, development and management that aims to make them usable and useful by focusing on all the users, their needs and requirements, and by applying human factors/ergonomics and usability knowledge and techniques.

This approach enhances effectiveness and efficiency, improves human well-being, user satisfaction, accessibility and sustainability; and counteracts possible adverse effects of use on human health, safety and performance. HCDSociety
