Taiwanese generallyuse of electric rice cooker, this product in Taiwan, has inherited the half-century history, but nearly half a century in the productdoes not have any calls on the evolution of the function or usage behavior, electric rice cooker market share in Taiwan under such circumstances seem incredible high.Therefore, thepurpose of this study hope(1) to understand the current problemsand what the consumersrequirement for electric rice cooker(2) after understand the problems of electric rice cooker, and the requirementsof consumers,we start to do a new design (3) use thequestionnaire to verify the feasibility of the new design.Usingthe three points to improve the current problemof TATUNG electric rice cooker.
Inthis study, the first premier research"electric rice cookerusing stateand requirements," the survey conducted for the three information as the "user’s basic information and usingbackground", "how much importance of electric rice cooker in user’s life?", "the requirements of users in electric rice cooker", total27 topics in order to understand electric rice cookers in the minds of those subjectsby valueand measuring the subject’sagreementandrecognition for electric rice cooker, Five degrees Likert scale questionnaire to scale as a tool to investigatefor 32 subjects, and then to a single T test analysis, it was found that “11 people size”were currentlyhigh satisfaction for the most common size, the traditional electric rice cooker wereeasy for users get burns ,green design is the trend of the world, , both sides of the pot shell waist lines and contours of images TATUNGelectric rice cookerpotfor product identify, the operation can be combined with electronic cooker’sdesignconcept, increase the display panel and built-in cooking mode, the manipulation can bemodified to easily switch with the control mode electronic control panel,easily to operate every kind of build-in cooking mode,and finally,summed up ten-point design specifications.
Begin usethe design standers to draw sketch, and into the design process, carried out by three designers, start from Ideation Sketch(the first stage),pass through the discussion of proposal direction, then into Ideation Sketch(second stage), and then discuss for modeling & human engineering,at last, three designers developed three different design proposal to draw Presentable Sketch, and become three individual different design concept 3D rendering , via the design department and marketing departments totally 10colleagues, carried out the evaluation scores, which were higher more thantwo years seniority in TATUNG company,hopes to draw on their professional degrees for electricrice cookeritems reaches evaluation scores of fairness, use of "new electric rice cooker proposal evaluation "carried out evaluation forms for three design casewhich are " Sincere, "" Flavor Cooker "," Full Coin "with the highest score five points, the lowest score a point the way for the appearance of doing the selection, by the final average score the highest "Full Coin"as the final proposal to make Working SAMPLE produced.
Finally, two questionnaires were "Full Coin appearance before the trial evaluation" and "Full Coin experience after trail evaluation" , two questionnaires, for analysiswith the design stander in pre-research. 5 points Likert as a test tool, then the software will analyze statistical value. For "Full Coin appearanceevaluation before the trial,"totallysix topics , for the appearanceof the electric rice cooker test before subjects use it . "Full Coinevaluation after the trial experience," subdivided into operating, functional, healthy & safety, totally10topics of the questionnaire test subjects in order to understand the new electric rice cookeris good enough to the subjects.
This study proposes aset of established design processes for electric rice cooker, hoping to provide thehome appliancedesigner as a reference sample, in the direction of design thinking as a reference design development, and (a) appearance (2 ) material (3) function(4) safety,to bring up the above 4 topics a suggestion and the direction of research afterwards ,and realized that the product identity is important to the consumers when they are choose the product. And hope electric rice cooker could be designed as multi-fuction, and to study about how to cook with different ingredients, and different using conditions, and the use of different target groups, different materials applied research.
