This paper presents a theoretical framework for researching how humans integrate their cognitive abilities to accomplish complex work in the real world. The work draws on the distinction between micro and macro cognition and proposes the existence of a macro architecture. The idea of a macro architecture is discussed in terms of facilitating research on integrated cognition. The SGOMS architecture is described as a working example of a macro architecture. Alternative frameworks are also discussed. Copyright
