The development of support of decision making processes in complex systems requires a systematic approach based upon knowledge of the humans role, capabilities, and the tasks to be performed. Results from a survey and a workshop show that there is a need for methodologies that systematically address the cognitive factors of complex task situations. COADE provides the developer and cognitive specialist with an approach to the development of cognitively-centered systems. The COADE framework comprises a set of activities for cognitive analysis, design and evaluation. Analysis activities result in the specification of cognitive requirements design activities translate those into design requirements evaluation activities control the quality of the intermediate and final products of the development process.
