One of the practical approaches to environmental issues in developing countries is introducing eco-products made in developed countries. However, such products are not always acceptable due to differences of various contexts in the different regions. It is necessary to understand how such local conditions are related with product function and structure. The aim of this study is to develop a design support system for visualizing design information for locally-oriented product design. The system aids users in understanding relationship among product specifications and local information. The authors show a case study on home electric appliances in Vietnam and Japan to validate the system.
