Department Industrial Design Year 2007 Semester 1 Degree Master Type of Document Master's Thesis Language Chinese&English Page Count 153 Title The Protection Image of Product Usage Keyword Protection idea design method of protection using process using process design method of protection Protection idea Abstract The purpose of this study is to discuss protection image and its feasibility applied on the design of USB products. The content of this study contains the following four parts: (1) Firstly, to conclude general structure of protection image through practical case and analysis. (2) Next, to extract the corresponding method of design based on gained sub-concepts seeking the reason which produces protection. (3) Take USB design as an example to design the sample according to every kind of devices, and to implement the test of protection image. The result of test depends on Principle Component Analysis to discuss the corresponding relation between protection image and products during the using process. (4) To discuss the causal relationship of protection image and synthetic evaluation during all kinds of using processes.
The First Part: General structure of protection image
Protection image can be formed by two main ideas from “essential enhancement” and “external protection.”“Essential enhancement” belongs to the idea of internal spontaneity; it includes four features like“collection and transformance”on forms, active and passive“defense”and “a sense of security” in the spiritual layer; while “external protection” is an idea of protection which enhances itself by extra power; it achieves the purpose of protection through “regulation of law and morality”and “defense.”
The Second Part: Design method corresponding to protection image
According to general structure of protection image, 12 possible design elements of protecting sub-conception will be searched; besides, five design methods, “separation,” “sanitation,”“adsorbability,” “identification” and “match,” can be arranged through the evaluation about the level of protection.
The Third Part: The corresponding relation between protection image and products during the using process
The protection image used on USB products can be constructed by the element of“continuous— segmental”which shows the protection level when the user operates products, and by the element of“simple—complicated”which shows the simplicity and complication while using.
On the whole, if the protection situation is conditional while using the products for the user, he tends to have a segmental protective feeling; and one tends to have a continuous feeling on the contrary. During the using process, the simpler and naturer the using steps are, the simpler one feels in his mind; and one tends to have a complicated feeling on the contrary.
The Four Part: The causal relationship of protection image and synthetic evaluation during
all kinds of using processes and their comparisons.
（4） Standardized operating process: the products which can arise the user’s feeling of being protected must have “systematic,”“careless” and “expected” images. The products which make the user feel good to use must have “simple,”
“artificial” and “careful” images.
（5） The using method without specific direction: the products which can arise the user’s feeling of being protected on the process must have “carefree” and “sectional” images. The products which make the user feel good to use must have “simple”and “continuous” images.
（6） Sectional using method: the products which can arise the user’s feeling of being protected on the process must have “continuous,” “systematic” and “artificial” images. The products which make the user feel good to use must have “expected,”“careful,”“continuous” and “systematic” images.
The evaluation of “protection” and “good to use”in the group of “sectional using method”is the highest among each group. Namely, while using the products, the products which can arise the user’s feeling of being protected must have “continuous,” “systematic” and “artificial” images. On the other hand, The products which make the user feel good to use must have“expected,”“careful,”
“continuous” and “systematic” images.
