Task Analysis is a core method in Human Factors/Ergonomics. You will learn how to collect and analyse data from observing physical work through to design of tools and evaluation of performance. You will develop Hierarchical Task Analysis (HTA) examples for both everyday tasks and clinical activities; and think about the role of HTA in wider systems analyses; e.g. SHERPA. You will learn a second Task Analysis method; called Link Analysis; to think about how to improve interactions between humans; machines; and workplaces. This can include better design of medical devices and workplaces to improve efficiency and reduce effort.
