Knowledge about a need or a problem is important for the idea generation process which leads into the design of successful products. However, this information is often not provided accurately meaning that an analysis of a need or a problem does not take place properly. An approach on how this information gap can be closed by a problem analysis which prepares the information needed for the following idea generation process is given in this paper. Especially, the necessary for this interface and some first ideas, how that problem analysis can take place, are discussed and presented.
