In general, ecology concerns the dependence that exists between the different actors, human or animal, and the environmental constituents and peculiarities in which they live. This creates interdependence, primarily at natural level, that leads to establishing a dynamic equilibrium and explains the evolution of life and is essential for understanding, analysing, and designing artefacts that are to be utilised by human being to operate in the world. Nowadays, looking more closely at the working contexts of modern technology and industrial systems, one can consider different forms of ecology (Rouse and Sage, 1999): • Information ecology, which involves the context and impacts of "information technology" on people and organisation.

Designs of control, emergency and protection systems, as weIl as interfaces and procedures that govern human interaction with systems, are always performed by estimating possible scenarios of application. However, these are not developed in isolation and need reliable and consolidated data obtained from past experience and engineering knowledge. This is the "normal" correlation that exists between prospective and retrospective analyses. 2. 7 Types of applications, types of analysis, and types of simulation of human-machine systems.

In order to select and apply the most appropriate HMI model, an analyst must primarily study objectives, formal plans, and procedures for operating processes. , by task analysis. Given that cognitive and decision-making processes are nowadays more relevant than actual actions, the standard task analysis has been further developed in "cognitive task analysis" (CTA) that focuses on the cognitive rather than behavioural aspects of human activity. In addition to the formal process of CTA, it is essential to analyse and evaluate the outcome of past events in terms of accidents/incidents and, especially, near missies with the objective of identifying the causes and reasons of specific behaviours and HMI in general.
