Towards a kansei-based user modeling methodology for eco-design
TypeArticles dans des revues avec comité de lecture
We propose here to highlight the benefits of building a framework linking Kansei Design (KD), User Centered Design (UCD) and Eco-design, as the correlation between these fields is barely explored in research at the current time. Therefore, we believe Kansei Design could serve the goal of achieving more sustainable products by setting up an accurate understanding of the user in terms of ecological awareness, and consequently enhancing performance in the Eco-design process. In the same way, we will consider the means-end chain approach inspired from marketing research, as it is useful for identifying ecological values, mapping associated functions and defining suitable design solutions. Information gathered will serve as entry data for conducting scenario-based design, and supporting the development of an Eco-friendly User Centered Design methodology (EcoUCD).

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 ...
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 ...
BOUCHARD, Carole; BRISSAUD, Daniel; AOUSSAT, Améziane (King Mongkut's University of Technology North Bangkok, 2010)The use of day-to-day life artifacts is a key phase in the lifecycle of products. Indeed it has a great impact on our environment. User centered methods are not yet taken into account in eco-design approaches. These methods ...
MOUGENOT, Céline; BOUCHARD, Carole; AOUSSAT, Améziane; WESTERMAN, Steve (Inderscience Publishers, 2008)Computational tools should efficiently support, and even enhance, designers' creativity. As a ground for such developments, design cognition studies aim at describing designers' mental strategies within the design process. ...
