Abstract

In a previous paper [12] we argued for more user-centric analysis of modeling languages’ visual notation quality. Here we present initial findings from a systematic literature review on the use of the Physics of Notations (PoN) to further that argument. Concretely, we show that while the PoN is widely applied, these applications rarely actively involve intended users of a visual notation in setting the requirements for the notation, nor in evaluating its improvement or design according to the PoN’s criteria. We discuss the potential reasons for this lack of user involvement, and what can be gained from increasing user involvement.
