Task Analysis (TA) can be considered to be one of the fundamental methods underpinning the successful application of Human Factors to system design and development. Recognising this, the UK MOD/Industry MANPRINT Consultative Working Group (a forum for the exchange of information between UK MOD and Industry concerning the use and application of the MANPRINT/Human Factors Integration programme in defence equipment procurement) organised a two-day Workshop "Task Analysis and MANPRINT". This meeting brought together experts in a variety of the disciplines that contribute to system development in order to discuss and analyse a number of key topics concerning TA and its relationship to the system design and development processes within defence equipment procurement.
