Abstract [en]

This paper deals with how control rooms are organised and how practices are implemented in order to manage a dynamic environment or an anomaly within a scheduled dynamic environment. Specifically, we will here consider how people co-ordinate their perceptions of a dynamic situation in order to manage it efficiently. We draw conclusions from three field studies conducted in the domains of emergency and rescue management as well as underground-line control. We consider the control room as the main cognitive unit, within which the cognitive powers are distributed. We specifically discuss a model to explicate the propagation and transformations of information within the control rooms. In particular, we propose that during a mission, a transition from an individual to a shared understanding of the situation takes place, within a shared understanding of co-ordination.
