The report is a collection of the presentations at a workshop on "Design methods and computer aided design of process automation", which was held in connection with the Nordic Project on "Human reliability in complicated energy systems".The objective of the workshop was to present preliminary project results and to collect early feedback from the potential users of the project results.The lectures given can be put into a hierarchical structure which represents the levels of the automation system development process.In the workshop the development process was represented from several views.There was a broad consensus among the participants on the need for developing design methods and computerized design support systems.The design of process automation differs from other design areas which makes it necessary to do at least a great deal of tailoring before commercially available systems can be applied.The documentation of the design is an area where improvements using computer support are to be expected.
