Industrial Design is still seen as a ""soft"" factor without big influence within the most product development decisions, because of the low measurability (Kohler, 2003). Therefore it is necessary to develop a tool which enables Industrial Designers to make design preferences empirically measurable. This paper will provide first insights to relevant theories, perspectives and a comprehensive methodology overview for implicit and explicit measuring methods, which will be implemented in future steps in the emerging crowdsourcing approach to support Industrial Design decisions.
