With the rapid development of experience economy, manufacturing should provide products and services which can satisfy the users. The product design evaluation methods and the relationships with PLM were studied. The research actuality and deficiency of product user experience were analyzed. To solve the problems which product design evaluation cannot be implemented throughout the whole product life cycle and user experience cannot guide design evaluation, product development process was divided into four stages based on the product lifecycle management. The design evaluation requirements for every stage were researched, the evaluation contents were analyzed with user experience methods, and the evaluation targets and missions were summarized. So the model of PLM-oriented product design evaluation system based on user experience was established. It proposed the direction of future research, and wished to guide the development of PLM-oriented product design.
