Cognitive Systems Engineering principles and methods guide analysis and understanding of complex work domains. Taking the CSE analytic findings to the next step, design, is often not clearly specified in process form. Some reasons for a weakly specified and documented CSE analysis-to-design translation process are: (1) variations in work domain, making generalizations difficult; (2) the value of the analyses in relation to the scope of the study – analyses from better funded studies create more value propositions for a client; and (3) practical resource considerations. The panelists share their insights on tackling challenges in translating results from CSE analysis into impactful and practicable designs, and offer solutions and strategies for making effective CSE recommendations for practice.
