How Do Consumers Estimate Product Downsizing and How Can They Be Helped?

In a series of studies, we examine how accurately people can estimate the weight and volume of downsized packages and test different models of size estimation (additive, multiplicative, as well as models assuming that size estimations are influenced by surface area of the packages). We also test the effectiveness of informational, visual, and haptic strategies to improve consumers’ estimation of downsized package weight and volumes.
