About the CERTT Lab

The Cognitive Engineering Research on Team Tasks (CERTT) Lab specializes in identifying and researching problems associated with socio-technical systems.

What is cognitive engineering? It’s an approach to the design of complex cognitive systems that involves understanding cognition in context and applying this under-standing to create systems that are safer, easier to use, and more effective.

What is a socio-technical system? It is a mixture of people and technology interacting in a complex environment.

What does the CERTT Lab do to study socio-technical systems?

  • Conducts research on complex team tasks, such as command and control tasks, in order to understand the team cognition underlying collaboration, communication, coordination, and, ultimately, effective performance
  • Develops methods for measuring team performance and cognition
  • Develops models of team coordination

What is team cognition? It is an emergent property of teams that results from the interplay of individual cognition and team process behaviors and that underlies team performance.

Panel A represents traditional collective views of team cognition. Panel B represents a more process-oriented holistic view of team cognition.

CERI in collaboration with ASU specializes in identifying and researching problems associated with socio-technical systems.
