Designers’ Criteria for Choosing Human Performance Models

  • William B. Rouse
  • William J. Cody


There are many reasons for developing human performance models. It is an intellectually satisfying and enriching experience to develop and experiment with models of human performance, chemical reactions, economic behavior, and so on. Such models help us to understand complex phenomena while also providing the means to communicate this understanding.
