This paper designs a three positions collaborative decision making and control task for the purpose of investigating the collaboration performance. To build cognitive model for the collaborative decision-making task, the model and cognitive parameters are abstracted from realistic control task. Based on cognitive architecture, the cognitive model for the collaborative task are built up and verified by simulation. Depending on the cognitive workload quantifying criteria, the cognitive workload is obtained respectively. Finally, by comparing the cognitive process or tasks, the performance for the collaborative decision making and control tasks is evaluated.
