Abstract

Product portability is defined as a product s ability to be easily and safely carried and be used in a variety of situations without increasing the user s effort and workload. Product portability can greatly enhance human experience during product use, and, thus, is set to be a design goal in many design pro projects. Despite the importance, however, systematic methods that guide realizing portability during the product concept design stage do not seem available at this time. To address the lack of design tools, this study presents a set of ready-to-use design heuristics for realizing product portability and a new brainstorming-based design method that utilizes the design heuristics. An example design problem and solution alternatives developed on the basis of the design heuristics and the design method are presented for the illustration purpose. The portability design heuristics are expected to greatly facilitate creating various portable systems.
