Abstract

Ergonomics, usability and user-centred design are principles that are well known among designers. Yet designers often seem to fail to meet the users’ needs, designing things people don’t understand or know how to use. To have a clear view on the causes of this failure it is necessary to know what steps designers take during the design process. This research aimed to understand the methods used by designers in practice during the design process. A total of 151 design cases of students in product design were analysed
