Abstract

This chapter presents the basic concepts of aesthetic needs and product specifications in conceptual design. The user aesthetics needs are considered one of the significant determinants in increasing user satisfaction. In this regard, the importance of establishing product appearance specifications to identify user aesthetic needs is discussed. A method is introduced to demonstrate the significance of considering aesthetic and emotional needs when establishing product appearance specifications in product conceptual design. To improve appearance specifications based on aesthetic experiences collected from users and designers, an approach using fuzzy logic is proposed and illustrated by a case study of digital camera design.
