To ensure that products and services fit in with people's goals, it is imperative to ask why people would adopt and use a certain technology in their lives. An analysis of people's lives, personal characteristics, and living conditions is necessary to answering this question. In addition, clear conceptualisations and methodological models are required in order to describe how such knowledge of technology design processes might be applied. A model for a multi-dimensional and holistic Life-Based Design (LBD) is introduced on these grounds. This approach emphasises analysis of the role of technology in human life, that is, facts and values related to forms of life, as a basis for the creation of design ideas and for concept design.
