Together with our partners we teach and conduct research for a humane design of technology and business organization (management).

Our key topics are:

  • Cognition, cognitive model design and the simulation of complex, interacting systems - Personal reliability and resilience
  • Healthy leadership and efficiency of organization
  • Psychological and physical stress and strains
  • Development of efficient and safe work systems, work equipment and working conditions
  • Ergonomic products - and production development
  • Labor organization, knowledge processing, qualification and competence
  • Impact of technological, organizational and regulatory changes for people
  • Development of programs for apprenticeships and in-service trainings in the scope of personnel development - Safety management, safety related system evaluation - Event and accident analysis and behavior modification
  • Psychological and organizational aspects of the effectiveness of management systems
  • Psychological design of regulative systems and social development
  • Cultural aspects of the organization of labor
  • Design of age-appropriate products and processes

 

The "common denominator" of technical systems and organizational processes is man. The key to successfully develop systems lies in modelling characteristics of human information processing.

WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO WORKING WITH YOU ON THIS TASK!
