This paper shows a comparative analysis of classical product design theories with Gomez-Senent multidimensional model, identifying dimensions absent from such theories and detecting research opportunities. The Dimensions identified as absent were Factors (context) and Metaproject (project team organization). Currently in Factors Dimension, there is a transition from a technological point of view to a point of view focused on the human being and the systematization of contextual qualitative information. In Metaproject Dimension there is research about negotiating processes, design team organization and communication. Research opportunities are detected with multidisciplinary teams and in emotional, sensory, perceptive evaluation methods.
