Introduces the field of cognitive systems engineering, which seeks to characterize and support human-systems integration in complex systems environments. Covers key aspects of cognitive human factors in the design of information support systems. Reviews human performance (memory, learning, problem-solving, expertise and human error); characterizes human performance in complex, socio-technical systems, including naturalistic decision making and team performance; reviews different types of decision support systems, with a particular focus on representation aiding systems; and covers the human-centered design process (task analysis, knowledge acquisition methods, product concept, functional requirements, prototype, design, and testing).
