This article presents a methodological approach which helped the software development of an architectural modeler that aims to support the life cycle of buildings with a modular construction system. Conducted within a multidisciplinary team of architects engineers, computer engineers and ergonomists, this methodology is based on the analysis of three fields of functions (composition - production and evaluation) which are considered simultaneously through a theoretical framework stemming from ergonomics: Activity Theory.
