An Exploration of the Role Values Plays in Design Decision-Making
Coles, Rhoda; Norman, Eddie
International Journal of Technology and Design Education, v15 n2 p155-171 Jan 2005
The paper explores the role of values in design decision-making through the eyes of key authors and a pilot study. "Knowing that" and "knowing how" in designing are reviewed and the problematic distinctions between "know how"; and skill noted. The effect of values on design decision-making is discussed and examples from the pilot study are presented together with a new categorisation strategy for values in design decision-making.
