Abstract

In this paper the implementation of a software test rig that facilitates the capture of computer-based "activity profiles" is discussed. A case study involving the analysis of profile data for the activities of a designer working in the engineering division of a medium sized enterprise is also presented. It is shown that the capture of data including the time and location of electronic information resources browsed or manipulated during the course of an activity can be achieved with a relatively high level of autonomy. It is proposed that the results will be used to provide for a better understanding of designers' interactions with electronic information but also aid in the generation of beneficial applications of profile data for the support of designers' tasks on computer.
