This reference work covers the breadth of cognitive ergonomics in humanb1computer interaction (HCI). Covering models for design, learning procedures, and planning and understanding, this book is specifically concerned with the cognitive ergonomics of humanb1computer interaction--from analogical thinking to spreadsheet calculation, office organization to process control. It provides an overview of HCI issues from the cognitive perspective.


Researchers in human*b1computer interaction, ergonomics, and human factors; interface designers.
