Sample text

The psychology of perception, attention, and memory refers to this as working memory. The working memory is transient in the sense that it keeps for a relatively short time (4-10 s) and is limited in terms of the amount of information it can store and use at a given moment. Thus, having few steps and/or fewer “places” and “routes” in an interaction aimed at achieving a given goal implies less challenge/load to the duration and capacity of the working memory. Reduced load on the working memory increases the likelihood of performing tasks more accurately and efficiently.

However, the designer can fine-tune the decision to place the conceptual elements in separate areas on the window or under separate tabs or selected through a menu. Such decisions span the transition between conceptual and detailed design, because on the one hand, they reflect the nature and relations between functional chunks and impact navigation map and policy, and on the other hand, they involve decisions about specific controls. This brings us into the details in the UI. On top of that, the transition phase between conceptual and detailed design can include decisions about specific controls that have negligent impact on the conceptual model.

The conceptual model configuration Decisions on the workflow and dynamics of the interaction Each of the links in a conceptual model configuration is a possible route the user can take. However, having a link between elements does not always tell us if it is a one-way or a two-way route. In addition, it does not tell us where the entry and exit points are. The decision on those latter parameters is influenced by workflow. However, the physical location of each conceptual element also influences the route characteristics.
