Some Human Factors methods do represent tasks in time and space, e.g. Operation Sequence Diagrams (OSD; Kirwan Ainsworth, 1992). While these methods were originally developed to represent temporal aspects of a task or the interaction of users with elements of the system, these could potentially make the link between abstract outcomes and real world application explicit. The aim of this paper is to evaluate Human Factors methods that represent their outcomes in time and/or space to determine whether they can provide the link between abstract representations of some of Human Factors most popular methods and real world applications based on the above criteria.
