The prevalence of human erroneous actions as the major cause of accidents in man-machine systems has created a need for better descriptions of human performance, both for accident analysis and system design purposes. Models and methods are therefore required to both identify potential erroneous actions, and to specify ways of preventing them happening. 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. This approach produces an improved qualitative analysis of human performance as a basis for a later quantitative reliability assessment. "Reliability of Cognition" should be of interest to students of cognitive psychology and ergonomics at advanced undergraduate and graduate level.
