Eliciting User Requirements for the "Affective Health" project
2008 (English)Student thesis
The Affective Health project aims to empower users through a tool for discovery and reflection of their adaptability to stress with the help of physiological sensors that measure the bodys reactions and a mobile phone application that gives feedback to the user in form of open-ended representations.
However, when creating something newa new product, service, system, etc. it first needs to be designed. The process of design, while an iterative process, starts with a fundamental step of understanding the problem to be solved and its context. Without a proper understanding of the problem, it is difficultif not impossibleto identify possible solutions and realise if those solutions actually solve the problem.
This thesis focuses on the process of acquiring such an understanding using a goal-directed approach, and it outlines the difficulties and problems that can arise when using such an approach for eliciting early user requirements. The end result is a set of guidelines
and warnings to be taken into account in future efforts of using a goal-directed approach for early user-requirement elicitation based on the experiences during this work.
