Abstract Twenty-six workplaces were studied. They applied different types of computer-aided tasks (process control, numerically-controlled machining, stock control, fault management, etc.). The data collected at each post were tabulated in a matrix designed to evaluate the appropriateness of the computer tool to the task. This report gives the principal results, interpreted on the basis of a factorial analysis of the data. Noise was an important factor: in several cases, the more poorly adapted a computer tool was to the task at hand, the more disruptive was the effect of the noise.
