The SEISAN manual has been divided into sections describing the individual programs. However, many tasks require the use of many programs and it is not always easy to find what can be done and which programs to use. The following section intends to give an overview of some general problems that SEISAN can work with and a list of programs to use. The following tasks have been identified:

- Routine processing: Phase picking, hypocenter location and magnitudes
- Determination of source parameters: Fault plane solution, stress drop, etc
- Determination of back azimuth and apprent velocity using arrays and networks
- Crustal structure: Velocities, layer thickness and attenuation
- Seismic catalogs: ISC data, database management, completeness, statistics, etc
- Seismic hazard: Attenuation, catalogs, and soil response
