Hints & Tips
- It may be helpful to think of the Task Analysis as a set of instructions (similar to what you may find in a recipe book or a user manual) of how to perform the task.
- A task template may need to be completed for each task documented on the process model.
- Complicated tasks can be modelled if required.
- Other tools such as decision trees may also be used, particularly for quality control or “selection” tasks.
