A framework is outlined for the investigation of cognitive ergonomics issues in the use of computer-aided design (CAD) systems. It is argued that many of the cognitive aspects of CAD use have been neglected, and that the conceptual framework can facilitate much-needed research. The description of the framework is followed by a brief discussion of its application and associated methodological issues.
