Title: Task allocation and job specification in computer systems design
Authors: Ho, Ka-Wai (Kelvin)
Issue Date: 1991
Publisher: © Kelvin Ho
Abstract: There are many problems to resolve during the development of any computer system. Different methodologies have been devised and developed to deal with these problems. Many of the commonly used structured design methodologies and their methods are mainly data-driven and technically oriented. They fail to address the issue of task allocation and job design requirements for the end users. They do not see the whole organization as an open and complex sociotechnical system, with human activity as an important part of it. This often results in systems which meet the functional specifications, but fail to satisfy the social or human requirements as well as staff aspirations. [Continues.]
