The central issue is integrating the human factor at different levels and stages of system engineering. Economical and regulatory aspects also need to be better integrated in order to engineer viable and sustainable systems.
Currently, these key dimensions follow logics and processes that are parallel to those of technical systems engineering. Connections between them are not sufficiently structured and developed.
User modeling requires a multi-disciplinary approach (computer science, ergonomics, cognitive neurosciences, social and behavioral sciences, statistics, economy, etc.).
IRT SystemX research in this domain covers 3 complementary and interrelated technological fields:
- Users analysis and modeling
- User experience and HMI (human machine interaction) design
- New business models
