ACT-R/PM and menu selection: applying a cognitive architecture to HCI

  title={ACT-R/PM and menu selection: applying a cognitive architecture to HCI},
  author={Michael D. Byrne},
  journal={Int. J. Hum.-Comput. Stud.},
Understanding the interaction of a user with a designed device such as a GUI requires clear understanding of three components: the cognitive, perceptual, and motor capabilities of the user, the task to be accomplished, and the artifact used to accomplish the task. Computational modeling systems which enable serious consideration all of these constraints have only recently begun to emerge. One such system is ACT-R/PM, which is described in detail. ACT-R/PM is a production system architecture… CONTINUE READING
