The general purpose of the Design Thinking approach (which involves conception-oriented thinking) is to support the conception and design of products, services, processes, strategies, spaces, architecture and experiences ideal for optimal use.

As described in the present article Design Thinking is a process springing from the user-centered conception-design paradigm. The objective of the article is to highlight the need to combine an ergonomic study within Design Thinking, in the case of all fields of conception-design of products.
