Ideally, HCI provides methods that can be applied easily by engineers and systems designers, to ensure that measurement of and concern for the use situation is brought into the design process. At the same time conceptually rich approaches, like the human activity framework, have been proposed as alternatives to the mechanism of the prevailing cognitivism in HCI. However, it appears to be somewhat complicated to commit such alternative approaches to the production of engineering methods because they typically acknowledge that the design problem at hand most often is to complicated to be solved at the back of an envelope.
