With the development of society, technical products become more complex and intelligent. Interaction design of intelligent products is meeting new challenges. It requires practitioners to wade into the whole product development process and grasp basic interdisciplinary knowledge. This paper focuses on design methodologies for Human-Artificial Systems design with interdisciplinary knowledge. In the Interaction Design Method Framework (IDMF) we proposed, design runs through the whole product development process to help practitioners propose emerging technology-based designs. The IDMF framework is composed of 102 design methods and six phases. We deconstructed each phase of the IDMF according to three dimensions, design, information, and business. This paper offers a practical guide to using the IDMF framework by providing a high-level summary of the automotive AR-HUD design. It presented how the IDMF framework help practitioners effectively guide the design team and propose emerging technology-based designs.
