Human Factors vs UX Research?

Human Factors and UX research are really pretty similar. Depending on your industry, and whether your focused on products or systems, you’ll likely be looking for one or the other, but there is a lot of overlap between skill sets.

Human Factors is the science of understanding human behaviour and applying that understanding to the design and operation of better systems. Human Factors researchers provide knowledge and expertise to study and design human-centred products, environments, organizations and policies. Human Factors researchers are commonly found on projects in process-focused, high-reliability industries where safety and efficiency are paramount.

UX Research is a discipline that studies the people who use a product or service, and provides insights to make their experience with that product or service better. UX Researchers are commonly found on projects in product-focused, consumer-centric industries where customer satisfaction is critical to competitive differentiation.
