Design with event-related potentials: a Kansei information approach on CMC design
by Pierre Levy, Toshimasa Yamanaka
International Journal of Product Development (IJPD), Vol. 7, No. 1/2, 2009

Abstract: MATiK is a Computer-Mediated Communication (CMC) system for interdisciplinary workgroups. Its core function, the jump-analyser, enables to recreate the 'cocktail party phenomenon', viewed as an information social flow optimiser. Justified by MATiK's original design method, the criterion weights used for the switch evaluation were proposed to be quantified using auditory ERP techniques. The lack of clear results could not output quantitative data. However, this explorative study pointed out tendencies to confirm the validity of the chosen criteria and the extractability of quantitative. Moreover, the tool used in the study showed an original approach for experiments in Kansei design.
