Ensuring that everyone is working from the same requirements helps avoid costly mistakes in downstream processes with the result that we are able to reduce engineering costs and bring products to market faster.
Bedford, MA (PRWEB) July 15, 2011
Cognition Corporation is a small software company that specializes in next-generation Product Lifecycle Management (PLM). They are please to announce a newly release case study, “Tetra Pak Improves Product Development Process with Top-to-Bottom Requirements Traceability”, written by Jerry Fireman, founder and CEO of Structured Information. The case study details the process and benefits of choosing Cognition’s Cockpit tool.
Tetra Pak chose Cognition’s Cockpit tool because of the way it dynamically links their company’s product requirements together with all associated information. “The new software helps us provide those involved in the product development process with complete and accurate requirements information,” said Hans Peter Karlelid, Global Expert Advisor at Tetra Pak. “Ensuring that everyone is working from the same requirements helps avoid costly mistakes in downstream processes with the result that we are able to reduce engineering costs and bring products to market faster.”
Tetra Pak has seen numerous benefits since using the Cockpit tool. “With spreadsheets it’s very difficult to trace requirements except for in very small projects,” Karlelid said. “Cockpit, on the other hand, gives us the complete story with hardly any effort at all. A key advantage of requirements traceability comes when determining the impact of a change. With the requirements arranged in a hierarchy, with their relationships clearly defined it becomes easy to determine the impact of a change at any level.”
