In the design of advanced information system, the classic user-computer interface ergonomics should be supplemented by more cognitively oriented consideration of the user-task interaction. The paper reviews a framework for cognitive task analysis with this aim consisting of a set of models representing the task domain, the decision task, the relevant mental strategies, the organization of decision makers, and the users cognitive resources. Several application domains, such as process control, emergency management, CAD/CAM, and office systems, are briefly reviewed to explore the general applicability of a generic framework for cognitive task analysis.
