Student thesis: Doctoral Thesis


Recent years Virtual Reality (VR) software is a crucial technology for the industrial design education especially in the scope of product modeling simulated animation and evaluation However the difficulty of VR application in industrial design students’ learning is VR engineers cannot comprehend what the important functions or elements are for students In addition general-purpose VR software usually confuses the students and provides neither good manipulation means nor useful toolkits To solve these problems the ZMET-QFD model presented in this study can translate the in-depth demands of VR into actual functions from the students’ thoughts With the ZMET-QFD model twenty-one items are determined to be the functions for VR from the students’ perspective According to the result of importance ranking the top ten items are: real-world parameters physical database multiple viewpoints multiple-windows operation ruler and unit display environmental database material database multiple presentation models graphical interface and customized parameters The findings of this study could lead to the creation of important reference of designer-oriented VR software development that can truly help VR engineers to exploit a suitable one for industrial students' learning Further the study expects the findings could enhance teaching quality and learning efficiency in the scope of industrial design
