Towards Integrated Cognitive and Interface Analysis

Bowman, Howard and Faconti, Giorgio and Massink, M. (1999) Towards Integrated Cognitive and Interface Analysis. Technical report. (KAR id:21874)


Using cognitive architectures to analyse the usability of human-computer interfaces is an extensively investigated strategy. A particularly powerful way to perform such analysis is through syndetic modelling, where both the interface and the chosen cognitive model are described in the same specification framework; allowing the combined behaviour of the two to be analysed. This paper proposes LOTOS as a syndetic modelling language. We highlight four reasons why syndetic modelling is so difficult and show how the LOTOS notation addresses each of the four.
