  1. The designer has a clear conceptual model,
  2. of how a product works. But when users
  3. interact with a product, designers aren't present. Users
  4. have to get their conceptual model from the
  5. product system image. When interacting with a
  6. product, we can't talk to designers to understand
  7. their conceptual model. So we rely on whatever
  8. information we can find out about the product.
  9. From it's shape, form, signifiers, affordances. And even instruction manuals.
  10. This information combined, is what we call the system image.
