Abstract : The Taxonomic Workstation System (TWS) is a relational data base management system which facilitates the development and manipulation of hierarchically organized information, thereby eliminating the need for the more onerous and time consuming manual task analysis systems. Its primary intended use is to describe task requirements and the knowledge, skills, and abilities required to perform them. TWS is generally intended for any application requiring the processing of structured lists such as task analysis efforts and research on human performance. This powerful, personal computer-based system can be used for job and task analysis, task inventory, classification, scenario creation, needs assessment, and risk assessment. This user guide should enable anyone with these kinds of needs to take advantage of the power of TWS.
