Research Topic

This thesis is a CIFRE thesis with the company Style&Design, a major French player in the design of vehicle prototypes, car interiors and vehicle decorative elements. The main goal of this thesis is to propose a method to analyze the company’s design processes, in order to better integrate the user experience. To reach this goal, this research will be articulated around 3 axes:

  1. Define: How to define the user experience? How to specify it?
  2. Quantify: How to measure the user experience? Can we create metrics, to track the evolution of the proposed UX during the design process?
  3. Evaluate: How to better integrate the user in the processes? How to ensure that the realized user experience is consistent with the initial specifications and with the user needs?
