This book brings the state-of-the-science together for Distributed Cognition (DCOG) in complex socio-technical systems. It introduces the latest thinking on the Event Analysis of Systemic Teamwork (EAST) method, together with practical guidance and applications in domains as diverse as: air traffic control, aviation, command and control, energy distribution, maritime, rail transportation, road transportation, and sports science. Since EAST was first development over ten years ago, the method has evolved significantly. These developments will be presented in the new book. The applications show how Distributed Cognition works in practice.
Introduction to Distributed Cognition. The EAST Method. DCOG in Air Traffic Control. DCOG in the Cockpit. DCOG on the Battlefield. DCOG in Command and Control. DCOG in Energy Distribution. DCOG in Maritime. DCOG in Rail Transportation. DCOG in Road Transportation. DCOG in Sports Science. DCOG in Cyber-Security. The Implications of Distributed Cognition for STS Design.
This series will bring the very latest theoretical and practical research on transportation together, to guide concepts, design, development, and evaluation of current and future transportation vehicles and systems across the domains of Aviation, Maritime, Rail, and Road. This series will attract the best academics and practitioners in the field of Human Factors Engineering so that they can communicate their contemporary work to a large audience worldwide. Emphasis will be given to providing examples and case studies through the use of Human Factors methods.
