Title Cognitive Work Analysis: Foundations, Extensions, and Challenges.
Publication Date Nov 2011
Media Count 51p
Personal Author N. Naikar
Abstract This essay, which reviews the foundations, extensions, and challenges of cognitive work analysis, is based on a keynote address delivered at the 10th International Naturalistic Decision Making Conference held in Orlando, Florida from 31 May to 3 June, 2011. It describes the origins of cognitive work analysis and the utility of this framework for designing ecological interfaces, as well as for tackling a variety of other design challenges, particularly, the design of teams or organisations. Also featured in this essay is the formulation of a methodological perspective of cognitive work analysis, which complements the conceptual accounts provided by Rasmussen (1986), Rasmussen, Pejtersen, and Goodstein (1994), and Vicente (1999). Finally, this essay highlights the latest shift in research emphasis from work domain analysis, the first dimension of cognitive work analysis, to the subsequent dimensions of this framework.
