Where the Cognitive Engineering Rubber Meets the Systems Development Road
Event Type
Discussion Panel
Virtual Program Session
System Development
TimeWednesday, October 12th1:30pm - 3:00pm EDT
DescriptionThe fields of Cognitive Engineering (CE) and Decision Making (DM) have made exceptional contributions to our understanding of complex sociotechnical systems; however, it can be difficult to apply research and findings from CE work to drive Systems Development (SD). This panel discussion examines the connective tissue between the worlds of CE research and SD practice. Panelists with backgrounds across CE and SD will provide generalizable examples of how to apply specific CE theories, methods, and principles (e.g. naturalistic decision making, macrocognition, and resilience engineering), to generate various SD products (e.g. system requirements and designs). The goal of the panel will be to provide useful examples, and spur discussion about means to more readily translate research into practice.
