This paper discusses a methodology for cognitive engineering which provides a framework for the cognitive studies→intelligent system development→cognitive studies cycle. The methodology has been developed to address the problem of providing knowledge-based cooperative assistance in visual reasoning tasks, and is discussed in terms of its impact on three different application domains: diagnostic radiology, geographical information systems, and tele-assisted robot supervision.
