Abstract

This paper reports research, which aims to validate design knowledge, as the products of a structured analysis and design method (MUSE – Lim and Long, 1994). The products or ‘containers’ of the method (MUSE(C)) are used in the re-design of a range of domestic technologies, intended to support dementia care in the home. The case-study is judged a success. An evaluation showed the technologies to be more effective following re-design. The design products were shown to be correctly operationalised. Problems in their application are documented. MUSE(C) can, thus, only be considered to have been partially validated. The solution of these problems constitutes a requirement for future research.

Additional information: Conference information: Technology is now as much about leisure and socialising as it is about work and productivity. Cognitive ergonomics has accordingly become increasingly concerned with how people enjoy, live and work with technology in their daily lives. The main theme of ECCE-12, ‘Living and Working with Technology’, was intended to reflect these changes.
