Cummins, Inc. Case Study

How Cockpit Improves the Development Process

“Within the past year, we have recently utilized Cockpit as an evidence management system for two major new product introduction programs at Cummins utilizing our VPI process.”

CumminsCaseStudy_NewLPImage-1.pngCummins Inc. is a $17B company that is in business to “design, manufacture, distribute and service engines and related technologies”. To manage their complex set of technical processes Cummins needed a cohesive, broad-based, inter-linked database that was easily accessible by all team members in various functional areas. Cummins has found that Cognition Corporation’s “Cockpit” system engineering tool met this need.

Cummins also has expanded the Cockpit tool beyond technical processes to also support a wide variety of business processes. Several of Cummins’ “Value Package Introduction” (VPI) projects (new product design and development) are being supported by Cognition Cockpit in a cross- functional manner.
