In this paper we propose an approach called DiCoT (Distributed Cognition for Teamwork) that can be used for contextual analysis and design considerations. We analyse the London Ambulance Service (LAS) control room as a case study. This approach develops five models that guide data gathering, that provide points of reflection, and act as boundary objects between analysts, designers and stakeholders. Through using the method we find that information buffering and situation awareness are important for system performance. We conclude by identifying four ways in which DiCoT can help bridge from analysis to design: understanding the basic mechanics of the system, gaining deeper conceptual insight, recognising incremental design opportunities, and more revolutionary design considerations.
