Our fascination with new applied sciences is predicated at the assumption that extra strong automation will triumph over human boundaries and make our structures 'faster, larger, cheaper,' leading to easy, effortless initiatives for individuals. yet how does new expertise and extra robust automation swap our paintings?

Research in Cognitive structures Engineering (CSE) appears to be like on the intersection of individuals, expertise, and paintings. What it has chanced on isn't really tales of simplification via extra automation, yet tales of complexity and variation. whilst paintings replaced via new expertise, practitioners needed to take care of new complexities and tighter constraints. They tailored their concepts and the artifacts to paintings round problems and achieve their objectives as accountable brokers. The shock was once that new powers had remodeled paintings, developing new roles, new judgements, and new vulnerabilities. sarcastically, extra self sufficient machines have created the requirement for extra refined sorts of coordination throughout humans, and throughout humans and machines, to conform to new calls for and pressures.

This e-book synthesizes those emergent styles even though tales approximately coordination and mis-coordination, resilience and brittleness, affordance and clumsiness in various settings, from a health center in depth care unit, to a nuclear energy keep watch over room, to an area trip regulate heart. The tales display how new calls for make paintings tricky, how humans at paintings adapt yet get trapped by means of complexity, and the way humans at a distance from paintings oversimplify their perceptions of the complexities, squeezing practitioners. The authors discover how CSE observes on the intersection of individuals, know-how, and paintings, how CSE abstracts styles in the back of the outside info and huge adaptations, and the way CSE discovers promising new instructions to assist humans focus on complexities. The tales of CSE convey that one key to well-adapted paintings is the power to be ready to be shocked. Are you ready?
