This book discusses how cognitive models are applied to the analysis of human decision making in complex technical domains, and provides a critique of existing models of human cognition. It is the first extended discussion of the existing approach to human-cognitive modelling in applied settings which puts forward an alternative approach. This is a new and fresh approach to human performance analysis-it is of interest to anyone not currently satisfied with existing models. Key Features * Recognizes that the control of human actions is determined by the context as well as cognitive function * New approach produced an improved quantitative analysis of human performance as a basis of later quantitative reliability assessment
