Abstract—This research intends to be a part in developing an
automatic system that shows the potential of designing a
product form by co-designing with the user in order to make it
suitable for each consumer by applying Kansei Engineering
Technique. However, the operation of KE needs data collection
from specific target group in order to devise a formula and
interpret the results when applying to study the same target
group, or else the accuracy will be reduced. In order to
eliminate the drawbacks, Data Mining techniques will be
applied with KE system in order to use as an ingenious product
The style and preference of each user will be used as a categorizing factor clustering the database into groups with K-means technique, in this research. Each classifying cluster will use its own database in the system processing in order to gain a set of design elements precisely from the system. Decision Tree classification technique is selected for the study. For the model validation, we apply the cross-validation as an unbiased model performance evaluation. In order to build the KE system, the sentiments in this research are indicated by 5 pair-words constituting the system data. The result shows that, this method offers more accurate prediction of design elements comparing to the method which undivided users.
