To obtain appropriateness principles, this study compares and analyzes a variety of products available in the market. After obtaining preliminary principles, many times convergence and analysis are operated for getting more accurate principles. Then, AHP method is used for evaluating importance of every appropriateness principles and appropriateness principles are obtained. And, the appropriateness principles are used to construct the design process of appropriateness product.
