Exploration of User-Technical Process Scenario Technique in Practice
2007 (English)In: Proceedings of ICED 2007, the 16th International Conference on Engineering Design, 2007, 1-12 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
The objective of the research described in this paper is to investigate a scenario technique based on a user-technical process. This means that the scenario is built with the aid of three processes in parallel: the mental activities of the user, the user actions and the technical functions. Four product development teams have tested the technique on products that were under development. The results from the explorations have shown that the technique assists in understanding design problems, prompts discussion within the group, presents no great problems in usage, elicits new thoughts about the design problem and serves a useful purpose in comparing different product concepts with each other.
