Product and Materials Failure Expertise


Recalls can be the result of manufacturing defects, design issues, or unexpected and unintended user behaviors – for many manufacturers, issues due to user behavior can be particularly challenging.

Our Human Factors group can provide the expertise to analyze user behavior. We can help predict potential misuses before they happen or identify ways to address unexpected misuses when they are discovered in the field.

“We provide independent, data-driven insight on an individual’s decision-making and behavior surrounding the use of product. This knowledge can be used to help the client better understand the user’s goal(s) while interacting with the product. This is important because sometimes even subtle changes in a user’s goal-directed behavior can lead to errors and violations, resulting in incidents.”


Offering extensive experience in safety, forensic sciences, and failure analysis, Rimkus has a diverse group of qualified engineers, metallurgists and materials scientists, biomechanists, human factors experts, and safety professionals to conduct accident investigations involving products, equipment, and materials.

Rimkus uses specialized investigative techniques to analyze the full spectrum of the product cycle. We examine the entire life cycle, from inception to end use, including design, manufacturing, materials installation, training, operation, and maintenance.
