In particular, this amounts to recording : Most often , in this type of situation, the ergonomist contributes the benefit of his experience acquired in similar industrial installations or in laboratory tests . This method of working depends to a great extent on the capac ities of the expert . The approach proposed tends to be more systematic and less persona l . The ergonomic contr ibutions take place throughout the process in different ways . At each stage, the forecast of the future activity is limited.

Signif icance for the action: events which take place on a technical apparatus have a meaning for the operator since they are part of a story which inc ludes the present of the operator and the installation, but also the actions which he has accomplished previously, those which he is going to accomplish and events which could result from thi s . - cognition for the action: this is a description of the use of interpretation chains , decisional processes through which the action is produced by the operator.
