Abstract

This paper discussed the need of a deterministic'' representation of the operator's reasoning and sensory- motor behaviour in order to approach correctly the overall problem of Man-Machine Interaction (MMI). This type of modelling represents a fundamental complement to the merely probabilistic quantification of operator performances for safety as well as for design purposes. A cognitive model, formally based on a hierarchical goal- oriented approach and driven by fuzzy logic methodology, is then presented and briefly discussed, including the psychological criteria by which the content of operators' knowledge is exploited for instantiation of strategies during emergencies. Finally the potential applications of such methodology are reviewed identifying limits and advantages in comparison to more classical and mechanistic approaches.
