Department Industrial Design Year 2005 Semester 2 Degree Master Type of Document Master's Thesis Language Chinese&English Page Count 174 Title The Expected Image in the Process on Using Products Keyword Expected image The process on using products The process on using products Expected image Abstract The purpose of this study will discuss the feasibility about how to change the process on using products into expected image, as well as its corresponding method of design. The content includes the following four major parts in total: (1) First, to understand the essence of expected image by virtue of discussion of literature and analysis of questionnaire. Next, summarize the conceptual structure of expected image from specific examples. (2) To extract the possible method of design based on the reason resulted from sub-concepts which look for the production of expectancy. (3) Take the design of clock for instances, the study tests expected images, designs the sample according to the design methods from all sorts of using processes, and using main element analysis method to analyzes the structure of expectancy during the process on using products and their corresponding relations between using traits from all kinds of tested sample groups and expected images. (4) Using multiple regression analysis method to discuss the cause and effect between the process on using products and synthetic evaluation about “expectancy” and “love to use.” In the following four parts are concluded and summarized in sequence, and suggestions for reference are given to the follow-up study. The principal results are concluded as the followings:
The First Part: Conceptual structure of expected image
Expected images are made up of two major concepts—“Fit for cognitive effect” and “Oncoming.” Among these concepts, “Fit for cognitive effect” contains “One’s wish fulfilled” and “Prejudiced judgement”, while “Oncoming” contains two meanings of “Hope” and “Avant-garde”. Under these ideas, each significance is separately showed as four sub-concepts— “Move in proper sequence”, “Hope”, as well as “Stimulus” and “Novelty”.
The Second Part: Related design method of expected image
Design method which produces expected image, in addition to the element of its own material and appearance, also contains the process on using products and its situation. Arranged eight specific methods in relative to using process are showed as follows: “Using steps with a fixed sequence”, “Unceasing repeated steps with the same action”, “A series of using processes”, “Using step with speedy and fast pace”, “Apparatus with irregular touch”, “Unconventional using process”, “Immediate receivable feedback”, and “Easy-controlling operation”.
The Third Part: Corresponding relation between the process on using products and expected image
Structure of expected image in the process on using products consists of the element “curious—emotionless” which represents trait of product and the element “haphazard—ordered” which presents tempo in the using process.
On the whole, when using process of products is different from general products, people tend to be “curious” in terms of their mentality. Conversely, if both of them are the same, people tend to be “emotionless” on their mind. Besides, the using process with slower tempo will be easier to make users expect its feedback, so their mind tend to be “ordered”; on the contrary, the using process with faster tempo can not make users expect its feedback, so their feeling tend to be “haphazard.”
The Fourth Part: Casual and effect between expected image in all sorts of using processes and synthesized evaluation and its comparison
(1) Using process of “Transmit the result by the form beyond vision”: Images which affect the level of expectancy and preference are “creative—old-fashioned.”
(2) Using process of “Using step which needs to be successive and fast”:
the primal image which affects the level of expectancy “thirsty—
rejective,” and next is “pleasantly surprised—mediocre.” The image which affects the level of preference is “thirsty—rejective.”
(3) Using process of “Make use of using traits from existing products”: the image which affects the level of expectancy is “promising—disappointed”; the image which affects the level of preference is “changeable—fixed.”
(4) Using process of “slow pace or the waiting for a period of time”: the primal image which affects the level of expectancy “promising—disappointed,” and next are in sequence “exciting－insipid,” “thirsty—rejective” and “changeable—fixed,” “surprised—mediocre.” The primal image which affects the level of preference is “thirsty—rejective,” and next is “promising—disappointed.”
The evaluation of “expected feeling” and “love to use” in group of “Transmit the result by the form beyond vision” is the highest than that in other groups. In addition, it affects that both primal images about the level of “expected feeling” and “love to use” are “creative—old-fashioned.” In other words, if the element “creative” can be added in the process on using products, it will produce an expected feeling simultaneously and make users love to use.
