From a practical perspective, cognitive engineering has almost limitless applications to current and evolving work practices. From a theoretical perspective, much remains to be understood about creating flexible decision-support systems that can not only support a broad range of applications, but also have the automation capabilities to put data together into a way that directly meets the task requirements.
