Identifying product attributes from the perspective of a customer is essential to measure the satisfaction, importance, and Kano category of each product attribute for product design. This paper proposes automated keyword filtering to identify product attributes from online customer reviews based on latent Dirichlet allocation. The preprocessing for latent Dirichlet allocation is important because it affects the results of topic modeling; however, previous research performed latent Dirichlet allocation either without removing noise keywords or by manually eliminating them. The proposed method improves the preprocessing for latent Dirichlet allocation by conducting automated filtering to remove the noise keywords that are not related to the product. A case study of Android smartphones is performed to validate the proposed method. The performance of the latent Dirichlet allocation by the proposed method is compared to that of a previous method, and according to the latent Dirichlet allocation results, the former exhibits a higher performance than the latter.
