The Macroergonomics and Group Decision Systems Laboratory, also known as the MGDSL, is dedicated to the analysis and design of work systems (Macroergonomics) with a special emphasis on function allocation in automation and system design, health and safety, performance and project management. The field of Macroergonomics is closely related to Systems Ergonomics and Human Systems Integration (HSI). Group Decision Systems or Computer-supported Collaborative Work research is focused on the design of collaborative and distributed work environments and other facets of group (2 or more people) work.
