Nature and role of intermediate representation (IR) in the design process
TypeArticles dans des revues avec comité de lecture
This paper aims to show the key role of the intermediate representations (IR) in the design process and especially in the car design process. For a better understanding of the concept of design, which is by nature conceptual, we propose to study the concept of IR. To this end, we will present the three following parts: description of IR in the design process; nature of IR; and role of IR in the design process. We chose to illustrate this paper with our experience essentially in car design because the design process in this field is historically formatted and very formalised and complex. Besides, this activity is based on the intervention of many professional teams.

User experienced dimensions in product design : a consolidation of what academic researchers know and what design practitioners do BLANCHY, Kerstin; BOUCHARD, Carole; BONNARDEL, Nathalie; LOCKNER, Damien; AOUSSAT, Améziane (Inderscience, 2015)Experience has become the new paradigm of product design. Designers seek to anticipate emotions or associations a user might have when in contact with their design. The factors that influence human product perception are ...
BOUCHARD, Carole; AOUSSAT, Améziane (Inderscience publishers, 2003)This research has taken part in a collaboration between a big European car supplier and the research laboratory on new products design of ENSAM. The topic was the definition of a design watch method for the car suppliers, ...
BONGARD-BLANCHY, Kerstin; BOUCHARD, Carole; AOUSSAT, Améziane (Japan Society of Kansei Engineering, 2013)This article discusses momentary limitations of the Kansei Engineering methods. There are for example the focus on the evaluation of colour and form factors, as well as the highly time consuming creation of the questionnaires. ...
BOUCHARD, Carole; AOUSSAT, Améziane; DUCHAMP, Robert (Inderscience Publisher, 2006)This paper aims at studying the role of sketching in car styling. Prior studies have shown that sketches play a major role in the early phases of design. A definition of the intermediate representations and mental ...
KIM, Jieun; BOUCHARD, Carole; OMHOVER, Jean-François; AOUSSAT, Améziane (Elsevier, 2010)This study aims to explore how designers mentally categorise design information during the early sketching performed in the generative phase. An action research approach is particularly appropriate for identifying the ...
