This paper presents the first part of the analisys of a literature review conducted to build an inventory of methods/models for design, development and innovation of products that are focused on both –the human factor (user) and the environmental factor (sustainability). Four databases were selected and reviewed using criteria of robustness, coverage and relevant thematic. About 1900 items were found by applying 56 search equations. Over 850 articles were classified to identify those combining simultaneously the application of Human Factors and Environmental Factors and the analysis is driven towards recognizing the state of the art in terms of each of the principles and postulates of Ergoecology.
