Cognitive ergonomics principles for re-designing function allocation and interfaces of a fire fighting control room of a large city
The objective of this paper is to describe and discuss, firstly, how cognitive ergonomics principles have been applied for the evaluation of the activities carried out in the main control room of a fire fighting system of a large city. The same principles, coupled with engineering creativity, have then been applied for re-designing the allocation of functions and interfaces in order to improve efficiency of communication, decision making and working context.
