  1. Task analysis helps in predicting the ease with which users can learn new tasks so as to become a proficient user of a particular software, application or machine
  2. Task analysis provides evidence of how an interface is good at offering support for exploration and also the time an expert would take to execute a given task
  3. The ignorance of task analysis may lead to a biased application in which the maker emphasizes on one of the interfaces or does not realize the differences in the two interfaces of HCI

Generally, task analysis involves the study of how people perform their different jobs with the objective of determining what it is that they do, the things that they use and suggesting what they must know. According to Chen (2001), in Human-Computer Interactions (HCI), the process of task analysis verifies the specific actions that a user must undertake so as to attain their objective of accomplishing a given task. In specific, the analysis of task directly describes the procedure that the user must actually employ. As such, task analysis helps in predicting the ease with which users can learn new tasks so as to become a proficient user of a particular software, application or machine. Further, Chen (2001) asserts that task analysis provides evidence of how an interface is good at offering support for exploration and also the time an expert would take to execute a given task. Hence, the ignorance of task analysis may lead to a biased application in which the maker emphasizes on one of the interfaces or does not realize the differences in the two interfaces of HCI.
