I am trying to write my analysis of task for my product design A-Level (Year 12 gang) and i have literally no idea what it is supposed to entail. I also can't ask the teacher what it is because it was supposed to be done ages ago. Literally i just need to know what i'm supposed to write.
Thanks!

It basically a run through of a task step by step. Say you wanted to design a product to help with washing up you need to do a task analysis of someone doing washing up. So each stage movement by movement e.g raise hand. Once you have done that you need to number each step from 1-10 (1 being very easy and 10 being the hardest). The idea is to identify the areas where there are 'pain points' i.e frustrations that the user has, this will then help you design a product for the task as you know which areas the consumer has trouble with.
Ideally you would observe someone doing the task but if you are behind then i would advise just doing it yourself or watching youtube videos of someone doing your chosen task. Hope that helped

Get a sheet of paper. Do a spider diagram.This is a very early page. It shows thinking not definite answers. They come later.List as many questions as you can about the project you are attempting. Who what when why where ?E.g. What will it look like?What variations could I make?What materials can I use ? What safety considerations must I keep in mind ? Will it need to conform to standards?Who will use it? Environmental issues?Will I have to buy anything?Is it’s style influenced by anything?- Think of questions relevant to the project. Write lists of possibilities as answers, not definite answers. I.e What materials could I use?Aluminium, Brass, Stainless Steel, polypropylene. Acrylic.When you have done it. Type it up.I’m not sure if you should present it as a spider diagram or typed up but either is good for me.

Also look up ACCESSFM to help you with question ideas.

This is the initial design spec not the task analysis
