In this thesis, we will conduct a replication study of existing work by Voit et al., which examined the influence of the research method when evaluating smart artifacts. They compared five research methods, namely Online Survey, Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), Laboratory (Lab) and In-Situ in a study with 60 participants, who should evaluate four different smart artifacts. For our replication study, we will exchange the smart artifacts with four tasks related to assembling furniture and woodwork, while also shifting the interest to the subject of visualization through visual guides. Our results show no significant effect of the research method on the questionnaire results or completion times, which is in direct contrast to the previous work by Voit et al. We are discussing factors such as the used technology, which could explain the different results compared to the original study. We also argue, that prior experience with the respective tasks and the utilities of the evaluated prototypes may have an influence on the results. Further, we suggest follow-up examinations, to determine when the method has a significant effect.
