  1. 1. Agency and Artefacts : A cognitive semiotic exploration of design

    Sammanfattning : This thesis investigates the role of artefacts in relation to human agency and design within a cognitive semiotics framework. It deals with questions such as What is agency? What are artefacts and how does agency relate to them? What kind of intentions are involved in the activity of designing? What is human-specific with respect to agency and design? How can the origins and evolution of design be explained? Addressing these questions, the thesis proposes a layered model of agency for explaining the relations between different grades of agentive complexity. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Design Syntactics: A Functional Approach to Visual Product Form Theory, Models, and Methods

    Författare :Anders Warell; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :product semantics; engineering design; industrial design; product form; design methodology; visual design aesthetics; design syntactics; functionality; interdisciplinary design; form design development;

    Sammanfattning : In line with the increasing importance of high quality appearance and aesthetic appeal in the design of consumer products, there is a growing need for enhanced understanding and ability to handle visual product form in industrial product development. In an approach for meeting that need, this thesis concerns the nature and development of visual design aesthetics in product form design. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Informationsdesign i tillståndsövervakning : En studie av ett bildskärmsbaserat användargränssnitt för tillståndsövervakning och tillståndsbaserat underhåll

    Författare :Carina Andersson; Yvonne Eriksson; Björn Fagerström; Karin Wagner; Mälardalens högskola; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; human-computer interaction; information design; user interface design; visual communication; människa-datorinteraktion; informationsdesign; gränssnittsdesign; visuell kommunikation; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP; Information technology; Informationsteknik; Image analysis; Bildanalys; Innovation and Design; innovation och design;

    Sammanfattning : This research concerns the information design and visual design of graphical user interfaces (GUI) in the condition monitoring and condition-based maintenance (CBM) of production equipment. It also concerns various communicative aspects of a GUI, which is used to monitor the condition of assets. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Design Semiosis; Synthesis of Products in the Design Activity

    Författare :Mark W. Lange; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :Synthesis; Product Design; Quality Creation; Semiotics; Perceptual Knowledge; Problem Solving; Designer;

    Sammanfattning : Products are designed by someone to be perceived by someone.Within the body of this thesis there can be found thespecification of a conceptualization, an ontology, thatreflects the idea engendered by this statement. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Produktens budskap: metoder för värdering av produkters semantiska funktioner ur ett användarperspektiv

    Författare :Li A B E Wikström; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; methods for product semantics; design semiotics; user study; industrial design;

    Sammanfattning : Products that we meet have different functions; technical, practical and semantic functions. Rune Monö defines four semantic functions of the product: to describe its purpose and way of use; to express its qualities, for example 'lightness' and 'dependability'; to signal, i e urge the user to react in a specific way, and to identify its purpose, origin, identity and product field.
