Reducing Memory and Attention Failures/errors: Cognitive Load Assessment

Live Webinar

  • 90 minutes

Human error is known to be the primary cause of quality and production losses in many industries. Although it is unlikely that human error will ever be eliminated, many human performance problems can be prevented. Human errors start at the design stage and usually factors associated to cognitive load are ignored. In science, cognition is the mental processing that includes the attention of working memory, comprehending and producing language, calculating, reasoning, problem solving, and decision making. This course evaluates cognitive issues that may be the cause of these failures.

Join this session by expert speaker Ginette Collazo, where she will discuss how to analyze the responses and determine the cognition levels.
