Task Partitioning usually refers to the process of division of one task into sequential actions which are to be assigned to particular individuals or units. This conception means that one task can be sub-divided, allotted among multiple performers or groups, and coordinated within a single workflow. With a help of task partitioning people can accomplish more within less amount of time and energy. Working units can process their portions one after another or in parallel – it is defined by character and requirements of each specific task being partitioned. The essential requirements along with the best manner to partition a task are derived with a help of task analysis practice.
Task Partitioning is a process of translating a task’s workflow into terms of division of labour – the ancient mechanism that has been developing over centuries and underlies the modern civilization of mankind. The phenomenon of task partitioning is also known as a part of animate nature – social insects (such as bees, wasps or ants) employ this practice for their survival, including collection of resources (food, water, building material) and construction of their nests.
