Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Cognitive engineering is largely concerned with creating environmental designs to support skillful and effective human activity. Psychological models must meet special constraints in order to effectively support this enterprise. The goal of this paper to to identify a set of constraints that models must meet if they can usefully guide design. It is concluded that cognitive engineering most requires models capable of representing the human and environment as an integrated unit, and which represent the activities underlying fluent, skilled behavior.
