Industrial Design Modeling for Smart Jewelry
This paper presents the methodologies and the systematic approaches in the industrial design development process to incorporate aesthetic and affective elements in Smart Jewelry. Contextual inquiry (CI) was conducted at the early stage to gather all the users’ inputs and feedback and KJ Analysis was applied to prioritize the voice of customer and hence the customer needs could be identified as our design requirements. Benchmarking and trend analysis were also conducted in early stage to understand market trends, compare features and faults in existing product in the market, at the same time finding opportunities for improvement in our own product. The development of the shape of the Smart Jewelry, the color chosen and the branding profile creation were also discussed in the paper. Several design concepts and prototypes have been developed and user’s emotions towards each concept in focus group have been captured. The survey was carried out at the end of this paper to assess the design effectiveness.
