DISCRIMINATING ENGINEERING INFORMATION INTERACTION USING EYE TRACKING AND AN INFORMATION OPERATIONS MODEL
A set of fundamental operations used to manipulate the information space during a design problem are described and discriminated. It has been demonstrated that Information Operations are distinguishable through eye movements. However, eye movements are inherently variable and the size of the observed Information Operation-gaze effect is non-uniform, indicating a complex interrelation between operations. The findings and model afford important knowledge that can be used to improve the training and support of engineers, interface design, and offer novel means for managing compliance.
