ADSI Releases Adds AHP and Enhanced Linking to Acclaro DFSS

Brighton, MA, Jul 15, 2009 - Axiomatic Design Solutions, Inc. (ADSI) announces an AHP module that adds functionality to its Acclaro DFSS software.

Better Decision Support with AHP and an Additional Concept Selection Tool:
Analytical Hierarchy Processing is a respected and commonly used means of choosing among many possibilities. To easily find out how prospective customers prioritize their needs, Acclaro now automates the production and web-delivery of AHP surveys to designated stakeholders and calculates the results. 

In addition, a new enhanced decision tool adds another way to choose among multiple alternative solutions that have multiple selection criteria. Perhaps after one has narrowed the number of solutions under consideration and learned from using the popular Pugh Concept Valuation method, Acclaro's Concept Scoring tool offers another decision aid that uses utility theory and weighting to further fine tune the process of choosing among the short list of options.

Traceability and Communication Aided by Easier Linking: A special feature of Acclaro is the ability to enhance the communication value of Acclaro models by means of links that show which entities in the model are dependent on each other. For example, by viewing its links, one can quickly learn the function, customer need or use case a solution or component exists to fulfill. V5's improved linking interface makes links visible in more views and makes it easier to create links and do affinity mapping. Particularly helpful is the new ability to click on links as a means to rapidly navigate a horizontal slice of a design across domains and modules to determine the original reason elements in the model exist or to determine the solution that fulfilled a need.
