of any cognitive systems engineering methodology will be incomplete unless they include a description of the cogni-tion that is needed to accomplish the work. The concept of macrocognition is a way of describing cognitive work as it naturally occurs. Definition Macrocognition is a term coined by Pietro Cacciabue and Erik Hollnagel to indicate a level of description of the cognitive functions that are performed in natural (versus artificial laboratory) decision-making settings. 1,2 Traditionally… Expand

Features of Problem Detection
Problem detection is the process by which people first become concerned that events may be taking an unacceptable direction that may require action. Despite its importance, there is surprisinglyExpand

Judgment under Uncertainty: Heuristics and Biases.
Three heuristics that are employed in making judgements under uncertainty are described: representativeness, availability of instances or scenarios, which is often employed when people are asked to assess the frequency of a class or the plausibility of a particular development. Expand
How Decision-Makers Cope with Uncertainty
We analyzed 112 self reports of decision-making under uncertainty to find how decision makers conceptualize uncertainty and cope with it in the real world. The results show that decision makersExpand
Distributed Planning Teams
To understand the way distributed teams plan, we considered a number of different configurations. Our research drew on observations and interviews in a variety of settings: The primary source wasExpand
The role of leverage points in option generation

It is hypothesized that people can use their experience to identify leverage points, which are opportunities for making critical changes at relatively low effort, in which courses of action are constructed from leverage points. Expand
