Summary

Cognitive engineering is the application of cognitive science theories to human factors practice. Attempts to apply computational and mathematical modeling techniques to human factor issues have a long and detailed history. This chapter reviews the seminal work of Card, Moran, and Newell from the modern perspective. It discusses the issues and applications of cognitive engineering, first for the broad category of complex systems and then for the classic area of human-computer interaction, with a focus on human interaction with quantitative information, that is, visual analytics. Not only is the control of integrated cognitive systems a challenging basic research question, the importance of understanding the control of integrated cognitive systems for cognitive engineering purposes suggests that research on control issues should become a high priority among basic researchers as well as those agencies that fund basic research.
