Methods of collecting, classifying and interpreting data on human performance lie at the very root of ergonomics, and these methods are collectively known as task analysis. They mirror both our current understanding of human performance and the design of systems which best serve the needs of their users. The concepts and techniques of task analysis have changed dramatically in recent years, and this collection serves to provide a summary of current research and advanced practice. It consists of eleven chapters written by distinguished practitioners in the field, ranging in scope from classical ergonomics to cognitive psychology, software engineering and systems design. The book is a production of a 1998 issue of the journal Ergonomics, with a new introduction by the editors. Key Features: * The most up-to-date book available on the issues involved in Task Analysis * Contains contributions from the foremost people in the field * A comprehensive summary of advanced research and current practice Annett; John University of Warwick,Stanton; Neville Brunel University, Englefield Green, UK,
