In conventional manufacturing settings, the integration of knowledge pertaining to aspects of perception, human-factors or user experience can be limited (Agost & Vergara, 2014). Culturally, there is a general split between the practises of designers and those of machine technicians who in many cases will implement the vision of a product designer through machining and assembly. This split is characterised by a lack of integration between the two distinct fields of knowledge. On the one hand, user-experience and human-factors knowledge drawn from work in design interaction (see Jordan, 2000; Moggridge, 2007), design semantics (Krippendorff, 2006) and design emotion (Desmet, 2012) to name a few. On the other is the technical knowledge of manufacturing protocol drawn from work in mechanical engineering studies and indeed experience of process use by skilled workers.
