PRIORITISATION METHODOLOGY FOR USER-CENTRED DESIGN OF ENERGY USING DOMESTIC PRODUCTS

PRIORITISATION METHODOLOGY FOR USER-CENTRED DESIGN OF ENERGY USING DOMESTIC PRODUCTS

Year: 2008

Section: User-centred design

Editor: Marjanovic D., Storga M., Pavkovic N., Bojcetic N.

Section: User-centred design

Pages: 343 - 350

Abstract

An essential element of a user-centred design approach is to understand the differences between the intrinsic energy losses of products due to their engineering construction and technology with the losses associated with their use. This argument for using user-centred design strategies is presented which leads to a methodology for the assessment of behaviour potential and energy impact for domestic energy using devices. From this assessment procedure, the significance of user related energy losses becomes clearer and recommendations for target products requiring an energy efficient redesign can be made.

Keywords: energy efficiency, user behaviour, locking in behaviour, domestic products

DESIGN 2008 - 10th International Design ConferenceDESIGN 2008 Conference was founded on the continuous development of organization and evaluation procedure that resulted in a capacity to deliver procedures and conditions of communicative competence. To assist the process of development for the engineering design research community the organizers of DESIGN 2008 propsed seven core areas for the conference as described below. It was required explicitly from all contributors to show how they are contributing to the overall area to emerge communities...
