Task Analysis

Task Analysis


When your product has to support people performing some kind of task (for example repairing a car), a task analysis will help you and other designers understand the task better.


Use observations of and interviews of people performing a specific task. Try to determine if there are guidelines for the task. Determine which actions and cognitive processes take place. Analyse your findings to determine a task classification and outcomes, sequencing of tasks and sub-tasks.


In practice

Projects that deliver task specific software, such as in the military or (factory) control rooms, cannot do without task analysis.
