E. e. using observation methods, such as watching personnel carry out the task). In all cases however, there is usually a prior or at least parallel phase of gathering and analysis of existing documentation, to find out what the task is about and its approximate (or specific) goals and task elements. Documentation analysis is not itself discussed as a technique in this Guide, although it is important, since if documentation analysis is omitted prior to task analysis, the analyst may well waste much time trying to obtain information which is already well-documented.

Information collection and recording Prior to the sampling session, the operator undertaking the task should be told what is being done (and why it is being done), and be asked to undertake the task as normal. The analyst should then begin to record the task activities. If the recording is being done manually, rather than with a video or other recording device, the analyst must be given a reliable cue as to when to sample, such as a tone given through earphones. The actual way that information is recorded will depend on the design of the information sheet being used, and there are two basic approaches: Simple tally This approach requires the analyst to make a simple tally of the number of times that each activity is observed.
