Abstract

Products, which support people’s autonomy and self-determination, have
to be adapted to the users’ wishes, needs and circumstances. For the development of those products it is not sensible to focus on performance restrictions, but the whole circumstances have to be considered in the description of the system of objectives. The approach described here is based on
methods from socio sciences and allows to describe the users systematically.
For this reason it is possible to get a more suitable description of the system
of objectives. This procedure helps to reduce the development risk, as the
aspects of acceptance are considered quite early in the design process.
