Can early-stage tools and techniques for iterative design help researchers understand a problem space?

Davidoff, S., Carter, S., and Mankoff, J. (2005) Can early-stage tools and techniques for iterative design help researchers understand a problem space? In Proceedings of the 2005 IEEE Conference on Pervasive Computing Workshop on Application-Led Research in Ubiquitous Computing, 11-14. | Bibtex
Researchers developing Ubicomp applications often must make ill-informed but irrevocable decisions early in the design process. While desktop computing researchers have multiple methods at their disposal to manage the risk involved in these decisions, the complexity of Ubicomp research affords few alternatives. We suggest that Ubicomp research faces a poverty of effective design process. We explore alternatives that might supplement existing de-sign processes so that designers can make decisions from positions of information. This suggests an opportunity to develop both tools and techniques that support early-stage evaluation
