This Technical Paper proposes a new cognitive architecture for human performance process HPP model research. HPP models are engineering models of human performance. They represent the human information-processing system as a series of subsystems consisting of input and output, memory and processing subsystems. HPP models are used in engineering studies of new systems where the goal of the study is to predict human performance. This report proposes a new cognitive architecture for HPP model research. This new architecture is based upon the holon theory of mind previously proposed by Arthur Koestler. The holon theory of mind proposes that mind is both highly modular and hierarchically organized. The report provides an overview of HPP model research, describes the holon theory of mind, and discusses how this theory can form the basis of a new cognitive architecture for HPP model research....
