Abstract

This paper emphasises the cognitive engineering of complex systems. It is clear that a unifying approach is required to bring together the otherwise complementary but disparate display based and task based methodologies. What is missing is an interaction or dialogue centred aspect to the design (Hollnagel and Weir, 1988), which can accommodate the exigencies of both display design and task design.
