Over the past 28 years, Patton Design has created over 300 products in 40 diverse marketing categories. All of these products have been user-centric regarding cognitive and ergonomic relationships. Human factors, or person technology interaction, is the foundation of Patton Design's work.

The science of human factor engineering and human factor design encompasses an interdisciplinary range of processes to make products easy to use. 

The start is a formative assessment that studies the unmet needs of people that will use the product. This formative evaluation is the basis to create the freedom to operate products that are best suited to one's personal needs. A formative usability test creates a basis to understand. 

Human factors engineering and human factors design starts with this formative and summative assessment for human factor development for industrial design is important to create a specification for the basis of development. This may be the most important process before industrial design can begin to assure happiness to the user and great product success. 

The science of empirical studies, empirical validation and summative assessment is required to test if the theories of early formative human factors have been correct.
