Show Summary Details


This chapter presents the reprinted article “A Theoretical Note on the Relationship Between Work Domain Analysis and Task Analysis” by John R. Hajdukiewicz and Kim J. Vicente. This chapter attempts to clarify the distinction between task analysis and work domain analysis, yet show how they interrelate. It does a nice job of making the distinction between task and domain analyses in the context of a laboratory microworld simulation of a power plant. In particular, it provides a good demonstration of how task and work domain analyses are distinct, yet related.

Keywords: laboratory microworld; task analysis; work domain analysis

Chapter.  6732 words.  Illustrated.
