CECIIS 2022 Tutorial:
Digital Design Thinking using Scene2Model

Location: FOI, Dubrovnik, Croatia
logoInnovation and transformation have gained increasing significance today, especially in the context of Society 5.0. One approach to tackle this complex task is Design Thinking, that supports early exploration and validation of innovative design alternatives. The goal is to generate ideas by using different design thinking methods, based on tangible visualization of certain aspects of the problem and collaborative developed solution space. Using a tutorial setting, it supports the creativity and co-creation within multi-disciplinary teams, but it restricts to location and temporal availability of participants. Absent stakeholders must be informed afterward, which is often not directly supported by the Design Thinking methods applied. Our approach through Scene2Model is a transformation of the physical visualization into digital conceptual models, so that they can be processed and used within modelling tools, further decomposed, and combined with available enterprise assets and enable a location and time-independent interaction.

The tutorial will introduce participants to storyboards as a selected Design Thinking method. Haptic paper figures (SAP ScenesTM) are used to depict scenes and build storyboards in the context of Smart Mobility domain. Participants will observe the end-toend process of a tool-supported transformation from haptic paper objects into digitized models. The Scene2Model tool, not only enables this transformation, but it also semantically enriches the models and allows their automated composition into storyboards.
