We conducted three weeks full time observations on a mechanic participating in a real, complex, industrial design project. The task observed was the specification of the operative part of an automatized machine tool installation. The method of simultaneous verbalization was used for collecting data on the mechanic's design activity. In this article, we present the general architecture of a part of a model of this activity as we derived it from the observations we analyzed until now. We divided… CONTINUE READING
