Abstract

In this paper a concept for a community platform is introduced focusing on human factors of motivation and barriers in the context of innovation. Building on the state of the art, a three year case study in cooperation with Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG is at the core. In a first step, a questionnaire and interviews are used to point out that a new attractive channel for ideas is needed. Based on these findings, in a second step, a software prototype is being designed and introduced in a pilot project with ca. 200 users. By using a questionnaire and expert workshops, in a last step, this project is evaluated as appealing to the community and the generated content demonstrates to be valueable to specific design activities.
