We investigate in which way the Hilbert space automorphisms can be implemented on the level of Aerts' hidden measurement representations for measurements on physical entities. Inspired by this, we propose a definition for a 'decomposition in context-dependent components' in order to push the property structure of a physical entity on the level of the hidden measurements. We apply this definition within the framework of quantum mechanics and we prove the existence of such a decomposition.
