Products - User interfaces and cognitive ergonomics

The user interfaces aim to ensure that the technical data which appear on a screen are pertinent and understandable by all operators: quickly and in the same way.
This includes, for example, creating symbols and associating them with colour codes, keeping in mind local and cultural implication. In particular, certain symbols can represent material flows (a steel strip) equipment (a conveyor), movement (an airplane), etc.
This work requires listening closely to the users and must be validated by them.

Cognitive ergonomics seeks to study the mental processes of the operators, and to utilise this understanding in the design of the systems that they use and of their environment.
Symbio's references in this domain include: Suez-Tractebel (imaging in nuclear power plant, intranet and extranet portals), Airbus (autopilots for A380, A400M and A350).
