    The paper gives an overview of a conceptual framework, a taxonomy, for
    analysis of cognitive work in modern, dynamic work places. The framework has been developed from field studies in different work domains such as process control, advanced manufacturing, and hospitals and is intended to facilitate transfer of results between different work domains and the use of results from psychological experiments for design and evaluation of information systems. The paper illustrates the use of the framework for mapping boundary conditions of laboratory experiments onto work conditions of actual work places.
