Product Evaluation Methods and Their Applications
Popovic, Vesna (1997) Product Evaluation Methods and Their Applications. In Seppala, Pentti, Luopajarvi, Tuulikki, Nygard, Clas-Hakan, & Mattila, Markku (Eds.) IEA 97 Congress, June 29 - July 4, 1997, Tampere, Finland.
This paper discusses methods and techniques to be used for an ergonomic evaluation of products, product interfaces and systems. In this context evaluation is seen as a part of the design process that interacts with all design stages. It plays an integral role in it and is concerned with assuring a high degree of likelihood of the user’s acceptance. Traditional and new evaluation methods such as task analysis, checklists, TA (talk/think aloud) protocols, CAD simulation are addressed.
