Human Factors Specialists Yvonne Limpens and Petra Boeree will present this month’s HFR&D webinar, “Considerations for Scaling and Conducting Use-Related Risk Analyses Effectively” — live on Wednesday, Oct. 5, at 10 a.m EST.

Throughout this presentation, the subject matter experts will define and describe:

  • How to recognize appropriately scaled URRAs
  • Various considerations, e.g., granularity, that aid in conducting URRAs effectively
  • How to effectively scale and conduct your own device-specific URRAs

Importantly, the presenters will share their insights on various considerations — e.g., device-specific vs. device-agnostic risks, repetitive functionality and granularity — that can then serve to accelerate URRA efforts and avoid time-consuming rework. 

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to have your HFR&D questions answered in real time at this month’s webinar.
