The use of the critical decision Method to elicit schematic processing in the cockpit: A pilot study

Human error is repeatedly cited as a causal factor in aviation accidents. Schema Theory explains how we interact with the world using stored mental representations and is presented here as a way to account for error. The major criticism of Schema Theory is the difficulties in eliciting them. This paper presents a case study using the Critical Decision Method as an approach to elicit Schemata. Additionally the paper discusses whether Schema can be represented in the perceptual cycle model. Refinements to the model are suggested and more research is considered necessary to verify the claims.

Abstract

Human error is repeatedly cited as a causal factor in aviation accidents. Schema Theory explains how we interact with the world using stored mental representations and is presented here as a way to account for error. The major criticism of Schema Theory is the difficulties in eliciting them. This paper presents a case study using the Critical Decision Method as an approach to elicit Schemata. Additionally the paper discusses whether Schema can be represented in the perceptual cycle model. Refinements to the model are suggested and more research is considered necessary to verify the claims.
