Nowadays, the vacuum cleaner is a quite convenient cleaning tool which is cable or cordless, industrial or household, and even equipped with a microprocessor that automatically clean the floor at home. Because the cordless vacuum cleaner is not limited to the cord and more convenient to clean around the house, it gradually becomes popular. However, the battery-powered vacuum cleaner still has to be improved. This paper presents a method to set up the market position of the product through the image scale and subsequently by 5W1H and tree diagram method, and clarifies the problems and the direction of the design goals. The following step, according to Morphological Analysis and Finite Structure method (FSM), arranges the positions of the major components of the product, and shapes the forms for developing the possible alternatives. Then, it is the most suitable for the consumers that using PUGH several times to choose the final solution. Eventually, using the sketches and computer-aided design (CAD) software turn the concept into reality. This study provides an approach to visualize the black-box design process, additionally showing that this design process is not only to improve the presented the disadvantages of the vacuum cleaners but also to reach the consumer demands. Application the cordless vacuum in the design process, changing the original design process including subjective awareness of the designers, results in the optimal alternative proved by lots of data and analysis, showing that the method proposed is applied to other products as well.
