Das Buch bietet einen kompakten Einstieg in die Thematik und führt durch den gesamten Prozess: vom Design und der Businessanalyse bis zur Produkteinführung. Relevante Methoden werden einfach und verständlich erklärt.

Software wird zunehmend in cross-funktionalen Teams konzipiert. Die einzelnen Mitglieder eines zeitlich überdauernd zusammenarbeitenden Teams bringen Expertise aus verschiedenen Bereichen in gemeinsame Workshops zur Produktgestaltung ein. In den Workshops werden aktuelle Projektkonstellationen geklärt, Fortschritte, Barrieren und Risiken der Projektphasen identifiziert, (Zwischen-)Ergebnisse erarbeitet und nächste Projektschritte geplant. Die Autoren vermitteln dem Leser kompakt und leicht verständlich ein fundiertes Grundwissen zu kollaborativen Methoden des UX Designs. Sie beschreiben die Auswahl und den Einsatz von disziplinübergreifenden UX-Methoden und illustrieren deren Verzahnung in einem auf Workshops basierenden Vorgehensmodell. Der dargestellte kollaborative Ansatz ist in menschzentrierten Entwicklungsmodellen, Design Thinking und Lean UX verwurzelt und stellt ein agiles, hypothesenbasiertes Vorgehen in den Vordergrund. Die fachliche Darstellung wird anhand eines durchgehenden Praxisprojektes illustriert, in dem der Leser Tim, einen erfahrenen UX Designer, kennenlernt. Tim leitet ein Projektteam, das vor der Herausforderung steht, ein Softwaremodul zur Leistungserfassung zu optimieren. In der Projektarbeit durchläuft das Team einen Problemlösungsprozess, der im Vorgehensmodell auf sieben inhaltlich aufeinander bezogene UX-Workshops: Scoping, Synthese, Ideation, Konzept, Prototyping, Validierung und zuletzt MVP-Planung abgebildet wird. Auf einer, das Buch begleitenden, Website findet der Leser Vorlagen zur Anwendung der im Buch angesprochenen Methoden, ein Glossar und ein Interview mit Tim, dem Projektleiter des Fallbeispiels. In dem fortlaufend ergänzten Interview kommentiert Tim aktuelle Entwicklungen im UX-Umfeld. Weiter steht für den Einsatz in Lehrveranstaltungen ein Foliensatz zu den Workshops des Buches bereit.

The world of smart shoes, appliances, and phones is already here, but the practice of user experience (UX) design for ubiquitous computing is still relatively new. Design companies like IDEO and frogdesign are regularly asked to design products that unify software interaction, device design and service design -- which are all the key components of ubiquitous computing UX -- and practicing designers need a way to tackle practical challenges of design. Theory is not enough for them -- luckily the industry is now mature enough to have tried and tested best practices and case studies from the field. Smart Things presents a problem-solving approach to addressing designers' needs and concentrates on process, rather than technological detail, to keep from being quickly outdated. It pays close attention to the capabilities and limitations of the medium in question and discusses the tradeoffs and challenges of design in a commercial environment. Divided into two sections, frameworks and techniques, the book discusses broad design methods and case studies that reflect key aspects of these approaches. The book then presents a set of techniques highly valuable to a practicing designer. It is intentionally not a comprehensive tutorial of user-centered design'as that is covered in many other books'but it is a handful of techniques useful when designing ubiquitous computing user experiences. In short, Smart Things gives its readers both the "why" of this kind of design and the "how," in well-defined chunks. Tackles design of products in the post-Web world where computers no longer have to be monolithic, expensive general-purpose devices Features broad frameworks and processes, practical advice to help approach specifics, and techniques for the unique design challenges Presents case studies that describe, in detail, how others have solved problems, managed trade-offs, and met successes

Bachelorarbeit aus dem Jahr 2013 im Fachbereich Design (Industrie, Grafik, Mode), Note: 1,7, Hochschule der Medien Stuttgart, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Das Design von Produkten war stets ein relevanter Aspekt in der Produktgestaltung. In der heutigen Zeit, aufgrund geringer qualitativer Differenzen zu Konkurrenzprodukten, gewinnt der Aspekt des Designs mehr und mehr an Bedeutung und kann so für die Kaufentscheidung ausschlaggebend sein. Diesbezüglich stellt sich die Frage, weshalb das Design einen so hohen Stellenwert hat und ob geeignete Richtlinien für die Entwicklung eines Produktdesigns existieren, welches dem Endnutzer eine User Experience ermöglicht. Um diese Frage zu beantworten, wird in dieser Bachelorarbeit zunächst auf verschiedene Konzepte des User Experience Designs eingegangen und miteinander verglichen. Das Evaluationsergebnis einer prototypischen Mobile‐App, die ebenfalls in dieser Arbeit vorgestellt wird, soll zeigen, dass diese Konzepte als Richtlinie für eine erfolgreiche Produktentwicklung unzureichend sind. Infolgedessen setzt sich die Ausarbeitung zudem mit der Gestaltpsychologie auseinander, um die Evaluationsergebnisse aus gestaltpsychologischer Sicht begründen zu können und eine mögliche Richtlinie für das Erstellen einer User Experience zu ermitteln.

Apps and programs are taking over the world, and that�s a good thing. However, sometimes we open apps and programs and have trouble figuring out how to use them. This is a sign of poor-quality user experience (UX) design. Computer users would rather use apps and programs that aren�t difficult to figure out. UX designers focus on the flow of tasks through a program and try to make everything feel intuitive. In this book, readers learn about careers for UX designers as well as how UX design extends to hardware development.

Universal UX Design: Building Multicultural User Experience provides an ideal guide as multicultural UX continues to emerge as a transdisciplinary field that, in addition to the traditional UI and corporate strategy concerns, includes socio/cultural and neurocognitive concerns that constitute one of the first steps in a truly global product strategy. In short, multicultural UX is no longer a nice-to-have in your overall UX strategy, it is now a must-have. This practical guide teaches readers about international concerns on the development of a uniquely branded, yet culturally appealing, software end-product. With hands-on examples throughout, readers will learn how to accurately predict user behavior, optimize layout and text elements, and integrate persuasive design in layout, as well as how to determine which strategies to communicate image and content more effectively, while demystifying the psychological and sociopolitical factors associated with culture. The book reviews the essentials of cognitive UI perception and how they are affected by socio-cultural conditioning, as well as how different cultural bias and expectations can work in UX design. Teaches how to optimize design using internationalization techniques Explores how to develop web and mobile internationalization frameworks Presents strategies for effectively reaching a multicultural audience Reviews the essentials of cognitive UI perception and the related effects of socio-cultural conditioning, as well as how different cultural bias and expectations can work in UX design

This book is a comprehensive and authoritative guide to voice user interface (VUI) design. The VUI is perhaps the most critical factor in the success of any automated speech recognition (ASR) system, determining whether the user experience will be satisfying or frustrating, or even whether the customer will remain one. This book describes a practical methodology for creating an effective VUI design. The methodology is scientifically based on principles in linguistics, psychology, and language technology, and is illustrated here by examples drawn from the authors' work at Nuance Communications, the market leader in ASR development and deployment. The book begins with an overview of VUI design issues and a description of the technology. The authors then introduce the major phases of their methodology. They first show how to specify requirements and make high-level design decisions during the definition phase. They next cover, in great detail, the design phase, with clear explanations and demonstrations of each design principle and its real-world applications. Finally, they examine problems unique to VUI design in system development, testing, and tuning. Key principles are illustrated with a running sample application. A companion Web site provides audio clips for each example: www.VUIDesign.org The cover photograph depicts the first ASR system, Radio Rex: a toy dog who sits in his house until the sound of his name calls him out. Produced in 1911, Rex was among the few commercial successes in earlier days of speech recognition. Voice User Interface Design reveals the design principles and practices that produce commercial success in an era when effective ASRs are not toys but competitive necessities.

The core mission of User Experience (UX) design is to craft digital experiences that not only empower but delight users, and we've never had a better set of tools for doing so. Not only is there strong demand in digital product development for people with UX skills, but technology is evolving so rapidly and in such interesting ways that the work affords constant opportunities to innovate and let your creativity run. But how do you get into UX Design? Do you have to know how to write code? Or do you need a degree in design? And what exactly is UX? Does it refer to the process or the result? In The Practitioner's Guide To User Experience Luke Miller answers all of these questions and draws on his own experience and examples of specific projects to walk you through the methods used by designers to craft user experiences. These include: *Techniques of user research, including conducting user interviews and surveys and creating personas to represent the range of users you're appealing to, as well as performing competitive analysis of rival products. *A core set of methods for crafting well designed routes of navigation through sites and apps, called user flows *Creating the layouts and designing the interface elements of pages, from initial sketching and creating a rough site map, through the drawing of more detailed page designs, generally called wireframes, and on to making moving prototypes. *User testing - everything from rough sketches to fully functioning prototypes to interpreting the results of tests and making recommendations for any changes to products. The best UX comes from learning by doing and understanding how creative, fun and satisfying the work can be. Adding UX expertise to your mix of skills will make you more marketable, a knowledge of UX principles and practices and will enrich your work in any part of digital product creation.
