EXERCISE 15.11 [extra - not in book]
This question relates to the train both scenario.
The figure below shows an incorrect Hierarchical Task Analysis for the task of catching a train using the train booth described in the Train Booth Example.
- List any errors/omissions. (Note tasks 1, 3 and 4 are deliberately not expanded to focus on use of train booth)
- Fix the errors/omissions found

Missing Plan 2.
Task 184.108.40.206.1 should be a sub-task of 2.1.1 in sequence after 220.127.116.11; this is an example of sub-task / sequence confusion.
We have a 'remove' action for the Gold Card but no corresponding 'insert'.
- Corrected diagram (indicative) below.
And plans (indicative):
do 2.1 â€“ 2.2 â€“ 2.3 â€“ 2.4
do 2.2.1 â€“ 2.2.2
do 18.104.22.168 â€“ 22.214.171.124
if OK do 2.3.2, 2.3.3
