Graphic representations that show how the design process changes over the course of solving a problem are powerful tools for researchers. This paper presents three such representations - timelines, cumulative time plots, and progress time plots - and describes how they provide insights into the design process of engineers.

Keywords: design process, visualization, visual representation, timelines
