Abstract

Usage coverage simulations are proposed for evaluating the global effectiveness of design solutions for the widespread issue of the elderly fall. A Design Oracle is set to simulate the usage segments, or space, based on experts’ heuristic rules in a declarative way. For this usage scenarios space, two existing design solutions are evaluated in terms of real performances vector. Comparing solutions’ performances with the ideal performances, i.e. where there are no pain points, shows that there are important “value buckets” to be covered by innovative solutions, maximizing the utility creation.

Keywords: expert heuristic rules, usage scenario, evaluation
