This paper presents a new approach to modelling the time course of user-experience (UX). Flexibility in modelling is essential: to select or develop UX models based on the outcome variables that are of interest in terms of explanation or prediction. At the same time, there is potential for (partial) re-using UX models across products and generalisation of models. As a case study, an experience model is developed for a particular consumer product, based on a time-sequential framework of subjective well-being [13] and a theoretical framework of flow for human-computer interaction [23]. The model is represented as a dynamic Bayesian network and the feasibility and limitations of using DBN are assessed. Future work will empirically evaluate the model with users of consumer products. © 2014 Springer-Verlag.
