    Abstract : Design practices are to a large degree conceptually and methodologically based in ways of designing rooted in the 20th century. Some of the challenges that arise in contemporary design stem from an unawareness of design’s historicity, and the discrepancies between what design methods and concepts once were made to handle, and what we presently try to apply them to.

  2. 2. Consideration of anthropometric diversity : Methods for virtual product and production development

    Author : Erik Brolin; Högskolan i Skövde; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Ergonomics; Human Factors; Anthropometry; Diversity; Digital Human Modelling; Simulation; Visualisation; User Centred Design; Workplace Design; Product Design; Accomodation; Technology; Teknik; User Centred Product Design; Användarcentrerad produktdesign;

    Abstract : Ergonomics and Human Factors address factors important to consider in the product and production development process. This is done through a User Centred Design process where focus is put on human-machine interactions. READ MORE

  3. 3. User-Centred Design and Technology-Mediated Services- Identifying and Addressing Challenges by Analysing Activities

    Author : Oskar Rexfelt; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; technology-mediated services; product development; user requirements; User-centred design; service development; user studies;

    Abstract : User-centred design has a focus on designing products to satisfy user needs rather than emanating from a technological starting point. Understanding user needs when developing products is considered a key component to achieve market success today.User-centred design is almost always described as a way to design products that satisfy user needs.

  4. 4. Anthropometric diversity and consideration of human capabilities : Methods for virtual product and production development

    Author : Erik Brolin; Roland Örtengren; Dan Högberg; Lars Hanson; John Rasmussen; Högskolan i Skövde; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Ergonomics; Human Factors; Anthropometry; Multi-Dimensional; Diversity; Digital Human Modelling; Simulation; Visualisation; Workplace Design; Product Design; Accommodation; Technology; Teknik; User Centred Product Design; Användarcentrerad produktdesign;

    Abstract : Contemporary product and production development is typically carried out with the support of computer tools where the design of products and workstations are originated and evaluated within virtual environments. Ergonomics addresses factors important to consider in the product and production development process to ensure a good fit between humans and the items being designed. READ MORE

  5. 5. The Significance of Things: Affective User-Artefact relations

    Author : Viktor Hjort af Ornäs; Viktor Hiort af Ornäs; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; User experience; User-centred design; Significant consequences; Significant use; Significant things; User-centred desig; Teknik; Technology;

    Abstract : Products help people act, but also thrill, excite, and elicit fear, joy and anger. Artefacts are a natural part of people’s everyday lives, sometimes associated with values, dreams and aspirations. While traditional user-centred approaches have focused on efficiency and effectiveness of use, injury prevention etc. READ MORE
