Abstract

In the field of product design, product analysis is one of the most essential methods of market research for design planning. In this study, we propose a method for design learning wherein a group of learners collaboratively analyze a product. This proposal has the following features: (1) it can facilitate a multi-perspective analysis, even for beginners, by using the lists of analysis items and (2) it can facilitate objective analysis through collaborative learning. Undergraduate students of a design course assessed the effectiveness of this proposal through an experimental product analysis. As a result, the following learning effects were verified: (1) even a beginner-level learner can carry out analysis and (2) product analysis clarifies the direction of product improvement after the purpose of the product is understood.
