Abstract

A model of plant operator behaviour is proposed which simulates in detail the cognitive processes leading to decisions as well as the execution of strategies for the study of plant management in incidental conditions. Its architecture provides the representation of two cognitive levels of reasoning and decision making, namely the High Level Decision Making (HLDM), which allows to exploit operator's knowledge by continuously recognising situations and by building supervisory and control strategies, and the Low Level Decision Making (LLDM), supported by the working and conscious memory dynamics, when the operator implements a preprogrammed response or a planned strategy in order to satisfy a clearly defined intention. The details of the formalisms and methodologies implemented in the model are described and the perspective applications in the fields of design and safety of complex plants are discussed.
