Product Design Thinking Mode Based on Analogical Reasoning
Analogical reasoning is a common way to produce design concept, but there are less researches of design thinking based on the analogical reasoning. This paper constructesd a kind of design thinking schema based on the analogical reasoning (DTSBAR), pointing out the general flow of the thinking mode, with discussing the general characteristics of analogy mapping and analogy inference reasoning process. The design process of portable pencil sharpener proved effectiveness of this design thinking patterns. The research would be helpful to understand the designer's design thinking rules, and to promote the production of design innovation.
