Abstract

The goals of this research are to identify the design evaluation gaps thought to exist between designers, providers, and end-users and to construct a design evaluation and diagnostic system that can apply the results to product development in a beneficial manner. One additional goal is to then use this training program in the education of design producers in graduate school. To achieve these goals, we constructed design evaluation indicators to carry out evaluations of products and spaces. By doing so, it became possible to carry out evaluation research, and we were thus able to get the system of study and investigation ready. This paper cites examples of the evaluation research and considers the practical applications of its results, and examines its validity as a training program. Thanks to this approach, it was possible to find techniques that will enable evaluation gaps to be used effectively in product development and to construct methods in setting up training programs.
