Abstract

This paper argues for the immediate use of Kansei engineering to help deal with the chaotic situation of poorly implemented and disconnected technologies. A theoretical criticism of the current industrial capitalism, together with the promotion of a new post-industrial form of capitalism lays the foundation for a explanation of how this transition can be achieved through a proper understanding of Kansei. A detailed explanation of the Interactive Production System Apparel demonstrates the benefits to both manufacturers and consumers. The paper concludes that the application to apparel is just one many potential applications to improving the lifestyle and enjoyment of individuals throughout society.
