Introducing Cognition Cockpit Version 5.1 : 

Introducing Cognition Cockpit Version 5.1 Summary of Overview: General information about Cognition What Cockpit can do for you What’s in Cockpit Version 5.1

Cognition History : 

Cognition History Cognition has been offering tools and services for product development for 10 years Cognition has two products: Cognition Cockpit Enterprise Cost Management Products are integrated to provide a tool for complete management of product performance and cost We are successful is because we provide engineers with collaborative solutions to problems they face every day, without adding overhead and additional time burdens to already heavy demands.

Typical Product Development Process (PDP) : 

Typical Product Development Process (PDP)

Is the PDP delivering success? : 

Their PDP is designed to prevent problems. Project Hours reported per month Cumulative Engineering Investment Data still shows launch issues from missed requirements: Is the PDP delivering success? “Firefighting”

Are companies meeting product requirements? : 

The Aberdeen Group, reports frequency of missed targets: Are companies meeting product requirements?

Are companies meeting revenue and cost targets? : 

Missed revenue and cost targets are also reported: Are companies meeting revenue and cost targets?

What are the implications of missed product requirements? : 

The negative results of their issues are seen in the news: What are the implications of missed product requirements?

What are the implications of missed product requirements? :

Are companies improving yet – is a good PDP helping? : 

Analysts report that despite investments, meeting targets is the same or worse compared to previous years: Are companies improving yet – is a good PDP helping?

So, what is the problem? : 

Analysts are forming a strong opinion: The PDP is fine The problem is PDP execution Teams find many steps stifling, labor intensive and skip them. No integrated functional model with all product requirements. So, what is the problem?

How can the Cockpit help? : 

How can the Cockpit help? Why is PDP execution a problem? Too complex Tools are too hard to use No common data framework or functional model for all product data How can we improve it? Need something engineers will want to use The engineer needs to feel the process and tools help make their job easier The tools used by the engineer need to link all parts of the product development data together into a complete functional model Customer voices Hardware requirements Software requirements Product performance modeling results for critical parameters Failure modes and risks Validation and test data

How does the Cockpit help? : 

How does the Cockpit help? The Cockpit enables collaboration for the entire product development process using a web based easy to use interface.

The Cockpit helps manage the total PDP : 

The Cockpit helps manage the total PDP The Cockpit now enables collaboration for the entire product development process using a web based easy to use interface.

All Cockpit access is through Internet Explorer : 

All Cockpit access is through Internet Explorer 1 2 3 Click here for browser check Confirms your IE configuration is correct for the Cockpit Enter your username and password from your corporate LDAP server Web address for the Cockpit

Customizable Interface : 

Customizable Interface Customizable interface Custom attributes at any level

Document management : 

Document management Acts as a shared drive Automatically generates documents based on current project data All documents have full versioning and access control

Full version and configuration control for all project data : 

Full version and configuration control for all project data Each project can have as many frozen versions as desired Each individual item (VOC, requirement, risk) is separately versioned Details of changes available for entire project or any item

Customizable activity templates to match your PDP : 

Customizable activity templates to match your PDP Cognition provides complete set of template out of the box Templates are easily modified to match any PDP process Templates provide access to all Cockpit features and reports

Needs/Voice collection capabilities : 

Needs/Voice collection capabilities Word templates for automatic survey imports Survey results summary KJ Analysis to organize raw voice input Affinity diagrams with red and blue groupings

Needs/Voice collection capabilities : 

Needs/Voice collection capabilities Prioritized customer voices for translation into requirements

House of Quality / QFD : 

House of Quality / QFD Document based HOQ reports Can organize by product subsystems or by category

Requirements / Critical Parameter Management : 

Requirements / Critical Parameter Management Supports all types of product requirements Tracks actual values including both nominal and variation
