typically efficiency is part of the consideration of ergonomics.

See:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ergonomics

Quote: «Ergonomics (or human factors) is the scientific discipline concerned with the understanding of interactions among humans and other elements of a system, and the profession that applies theory, principles, data and methods to design in order to optimize human well-being and overall system performance.»

Note the last few words: “... and overall system performance”.
