Visual syntax does matter: improving the cognitive effectiveness of the i* visual notation

Daniel L. Moody, Patrick Heymans, Raimundas Matulevičius
2010 Requirements Engineering  
The results can be used to improve its effectiveness in practice, particularly for communicating with end users.  ...  We evaluate the i* visual notation using a set of principles for designing cognitively effective visual notations (the Physics of Notations).  ...  Such a level of semantic complexity makes it difficult to design an effective visual notation for communicating with end users. This provides a clear case for simplifying the semantics of i*.  ...

User Centered Development of Agent-based Business Process Models and Notations [article]

Robert Singer
2014 arXiv   pre-print
Additionally we developed a "block modeling" technique to find a semantically transparent modeling notation which can be used by novice users to model subject-oriented business process (S-BPM) models.  ...  Additionally we want to continue our research towards the enhancement of our modeling approach towards a user centric "syntax and semantic free" modeling technique to develop user and domain specific modeling  ...  Most effort is spent on designing semantics, with visual syntax often an afterthought [21] . For example, UML does not provide design rationale for any of its graphical conventions [21] .  ...

The "Physics of Diagrams": Revealing the scientific basis of graphical representation design [article]

Sarah Pissierssens, Jan Claes, Geert Poels
2019 arXiv   pre-print
Yet, although a large body of procedural knowledge about effective visualization exists, the quality of representations is often reported to be poor, proposedly because these guidelines are scattered,  ...  Therefore, together with the rise of data, the design of graphical representations has gained importance and attention.  ...  For example, whereas diagrams built for specification purposes should aim for exhaustive and precise visualization modes, diagrams for communication should rather focus on clarity and understandability  ...

Using the Physics of Notations Theory to Evaluate the Visual Notation of SEAM

George Popescu, Alain Wegmann
2014 2014 IEEE 16th Conference on Business Informatics  
In order to make the SEAM notation more cognitively effective, we identify some notation limitations and provide specific recommendations for improvement for each of the nine PoNT principles.  ...  A way to evaluate how effective the modeling languages are for communicating their intended messages is to use the set of nine principles defined in the Physics of Notations Theory (PoNT, Moody).  ...  Visual notations that (largely) satisfy the nine principles are more cognitively effective than those that do not.  ...
