The cartographic basis of the proposed model contains data reflecting person functional status (FS). The FS comprises an integral composite score summarizing the available characteristics, functions and attributes of a person. This, in turn, can determine performance, directly and indirectly, on an activity or a task. FS indices reflect the current level of professional working capacity (PWC), the difficulty level of the activity or task as well as the nature of the influence of the working environment on the human organism. The mapping elements are selected as a function of the spectrum of methods available for estimating FS and PWC. These include physiological, psychological, and sensory indicators. In addition, depending on the conditions, the methods can distinguish between direct and indirect influence on performance. Methods like these can assist in identifying factors affecting specific FS, such as extensive, intensive, monotonous work, fatigue, hypokinesia and psycho-emotional stress.
