A workshop with the sub-title "Implications of Human Behaviour for Supporting Design Processes" will be organised during the Design06 conference by Professors Badke-Schaub and Udo Lindemann as a part of the Design Society's Special Interest Group on Human Behaviour in Design. It aims to provide a forum to present and discuss the latest research findings, and built upon developments starting with an international conference on Human Behaviour in Design in 2003 near Munich, and a subsequent workshops held during the DESIGN04 conference in Dubrovnik and at ICED05 in Melbourne. Human Behaviour in Design addresses the role of human beings related to their thinking and acting processes.
Thus, HBiD is focused on the research into designers' behaviour while designing and deriving support for the designer on the basis of this empirical knowledge.
Thus, key questions to be addressed by the workshop relate to implications of human behaviour for supporting (or hindering) design processes such as:
1. What are the impacts of opportunistic vs. systematic behaviour?
* Both types are based on cues, but the cues are different; but also the designers use different sources to make sense of different cues.
* Both types may be used in combination, to be able to have an overall direction, yet be flexible to adapt to the situation at hand. How can we balance this combination? How can we teach and train this?
2. What are the determinants of analogical reasoning?
* Under which conditions are designers able to create new solutions on the basis of analogical reasoning?
* How and when do experienced designers use analogies?
* How far can students learn to use analogies to widen their search space?
The Special Interest Group Human Behavior in Design (HBiD) has been formed in order to share information and experience in research and application related to behavioral aspects of designing. The Human Behavior SIG is starting to investigate new research methods and approaches. The main objective is to strengthen and increase joint research activities within the international community....
