HEMETS simulates a human operator interacting with a prototype user interface for a proposed system design. HEMETS is built upon a Human Error Modeling Architecture (HEMA) – extension of ACT-R. A subsystem, HEMA System Interface (HEMA SI), has also been developed to enable the real time translation of user interface information into a cognitive model readable form. HEMETS will enable designers to foresee the human error consequences of a design and take steps to eliminate, reduce or recover from those errors.
