Abstract

Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to explain the relationships and the meaning of the customer experience management approach, which involves manufacturing and fabrication influenced by human kansei with respect to the management of technology (MOT). Design/methodology/approach - Four cases of experience value creation from earlier work are presented. An interview was held with the product manager of each product or CEO of each company. According to the interview, the paper analyses experience values of four cases based on the five modules. Findings - As a result of analyzing INAX "SATIS", NISSAN "X-TRAIL", Canvas Bag by "Ichizawa Hampu" and Albirex Niigata from the viewpoint of the creation of customer experiences, it was found that each of them has high standards for all values of SENSE, FEEL, THINK, ACT and RELATE, meaning that they are like an ensemble of customer experiences. They create not only functional benefit but also customer experiences by the MOT approach. Originality/value - This paper explains the relationships and the meaning of the customer experience management approach, which involves manufacturing and fabrication influenced by human kansei with respect to the Management of Technology (MOT) and will be of interest to those involved in that field.
