Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 2009/07/07 - Project Performance International (PPI), a global leading-edge systems engineering and related fields training provider, has introduced a new 5-day Cognitive Systems Engineering course to its public and on-site training program.
Project Performance International (PPI), a global leading-edge systems engineering and related fields training provider, has introduced a new course to its public and on-site training program.
The Cognitive Systems Engineering 5-Day (CSE5D) course is presented by Dr. Gavan Lintern. After an impressive career with organisations such as the University of Illinois (as Associate Professor), General Dynamics Dayton (as Chief Scientist) and Defence Science and Technology Organisation - Australia (as Head of Human Factors), Dr. Lintern is now a member of PPI’s dynamic team of expert trainers.
Cognitive systems engineering (CSE) is an approach to the engineering of systems containing humans. CSE aims to amplify and make more reliable the human capability to perform cognitive work, by integrating technical functions of subsystems with the human cognitive processes that they need to support. Cognitive work involves the cognitive activities of knowing, understanding, planning, deciding, problem solving, integrating, analyzing, synthesizing, assessing and judging, as performed, for example, in military command and control, civil air traffic control, transportation, health care and video games.
This world-leading course teaches methods of cognitive analysis and cognitive design, and illustrates how they can be applied to enhance human systems effectiveness and safety within system development and acquisition. The course covers two complementary frameworks for the analysis and design of cognitive work. The basic tools of each are described and then demonstrated to illustrate how they can be applied to enhance human systems integration within systems development and acquisition.
Experiential design exercises give delegates practical experience with these techniques. The course, while standing alone, complements PPI’s 5-day systems engineering course.
The current schedule has this course being delivered publicly in:
• Adelaide, SA, Australia over 28 September – 2 October, 2009
• London, UK over 2 – 6 November, 2009
• Las Vegas, USA over 16 – 20 November, 2009.
