A Proposed information systems framework for effective delivery of user research findings

2011-06-25
Integration of user research findings into product design process is a well-received issue. There is a tremendous research on how to conduct user research and methodologies for generating user data. However delivering that information effectively is as important as the quality of data generated through user research, since if it is not delivered effectively the impact that is demanded by the product developers would not be achieved. Therefore the requirements for the deliverables should be conceptualized before designing them, in order to have an effective integration. Thus the aim of this paper is to propose an information systems framework for effective delivery of user research findings to the product development team members. In this paper, a preliminary effort to construct this framework is made by retrieving the framework's constructs from the literature.

A usability evaluation framework and a case study on a supplier portal system
Babayiğit, Elif Fatma; Şen, Tayyar; Department of Industrial Engineering (2003)
The goal of this thesis is to provide a usability evaluation framework in the area of e-procurement technologies and a case study on this base. A survey of the concepts of human computer interaction, usability and usability evaluation techniques is carried out. Additionally current e-procurement technologies are explored and specifically a Company̕s Supplier Portal System which was employed in year 2003, as an e-procurement technology for the procurement of direct goods, is taken into consideration. Pointin...
Developing a model for effective communication of user research findings to the design process
Töre Yargın, Gülşen; Erbuğ, Çiğdem; Department of Industrial Design (2013)
It is a commonly held belief that the integration of user research data into the design process can bring great benefits; and there have been many studies that not only examine these benefits, but have also suggested how these researches may be carried out. However, effective integration relies as much on the way information gathered from user researches is delivered to the designer as the quality of the information gathered. Examples of how user research findings are communicated can be found in literature...
An Interactive approach to two-response product and process design optimization with statistical inferences
Özateş, Melis; Köksal, Gülser; Köksalan, Murat; Department of Industrial Engineering (2015)
In this study, an interactive approach has been developed for two-response product and process design optimization problems treating the single response problems as a special case. This approach considers preferences of the decision maker explicitly and the correlation between the responses. It uses a predefined set of objectives that are commonly encountered in the literature and industrial applications. However, instead of presenting all objective values at each iteration, a set of performance measures ar...
A method for supporting data collection in user research studies at domestic environments
Öztoprak, Aydın; Erbuğ, Çiğdem; Department of Industrial Design (2011)
This thesis analyzes data collection tools and methods in domestic environments for smart product development processes. The aim of the study is to create a method for supporting data collection studies in user research of smart products at domestic environments. The study examines the utilization of information and communication technologies in ethnographic data collection methods at domestic environments with a qualitative approach. Two case studies are conducted to understand and analyze the effects of c...
The role of user models in product design for assessment of user needs
Hasdoğan, Gülay Fatma (1996-01-01)
This paper elucidates the role of user models in the household product design process for the assessment of user needs. Based on field work which investigated the characteristics and qualities of user models employed by design practitioners working in England and Wales in 1991, it presents the benefits and limitations of a range of user models which are most relevant for design practitioners.
