Task Analysis

An introduction

what is task analysis
What is Task Analysis
  • Broad ranging group of methodologies
  • Decompositional in nature
  • Many uses e.g.
  • Always goal driven
learning goals
Learning Goals
  • Understand the principles of task analysis
  • Be familiar with all the core methodologies
  • Have a knowledge of a selection of less frequently used methods
  • Conduct at least one extensive task analysis
  • Understand why such simple techniques are so useful
  • Understand the limitations of their use.
basic stages of task analysis
Basic stages of task analysis
  • Awareness of need to examine issue
  • Question definition
  • Knowledge Elicitation
  • Knowledge Representation
  • Data analysis and manipulation
  • Iteration and Validation
  • Recommendation, comment and intervention
awareness question definition
Awareness/question definition
  • Important issue when work is commissioned
  • Closely linked to organisational issues
  • May be in house, or out sourced
  • Resourcing a key issue - task analyses take time
knowledge elicitation gathering data
Knowledge Elicitation - gathering data
  • A discrete stage that needs to done thoroughly
  • A range of techniques
  • Should develop a proper strategy
  • experience should allow the expert practitioner to proceed on an apparently informal basis
  • Need to acquire domains specific knowledge to be effective
some methods for knowledge elicitation
Some methods for Knowledge Elicitation
  • Observation
  • Verbal protocols
  • Interviews
  • Diary Studies
  • Questionnaires
  • Protocol analysis Operating logs
  • Action Research Paradigm
who to gather information from
Who to gather information from?
  • Operators
  • Experts
  • Naive users
  • Trainers
  • Supervisors
  • Managers
  • Associated roles e.g. pilot for an ATC TA
some methods for knowledge representation kr
Some methods for Knowledge Representation (KR)
  • HTA - Hierarchical Task Analysis
  • TTA - Tabular Task Analysis
  • FMEA- Failure Mode Effect Analysis
  • Link Analysis
  • MORT - Management Oversight Risk Trees
  • Murphy Diagrams
  • Time Line Analysis
  • And many, many, many more.
further analysis
Further analysis
  • data may, on analysis yield further useful information
    • e.g. Probabilistic Risk Analysis (PRA)
    • e.g. Human Reliability Analysis(HRA)
    • e.g. organisational analysis
intervention
Intervention
  • Outside the formal task analysis process
  • Likely that you will wish to make or even undertake interventions.
