Top 10 Customer Criteria for Laptop Purchase
Incidence ()
7
Option 1 Continue with NiHi
  • Pros
  • Proven product
  • No delays
  • Occupies less space
  • Deliver good Dell product
  • Cons
  • Limited differentiation
  • E(PM) not highest of options

8
Option 2 Go with LiOn
  • Pros (assuming success)
  • Attain differentiation
  • Deliver superb Dell product
  • Lock out competitors from supply
  • Cons
  • Uncertain technology
  • Delay to market
  • Compounded delay to market upon failure
  • Failure would taint brand image of quality
    spillover to desktops
  • Occupies more space
  • E(PM) lowest of options

9
Option 3a Dual Development
  • Pros (assuming success)
  • E(PM) highest of options
  • Delay decision/maintain flexibility real
    option
  • Isolate volatility in design and minimize the
    independence
  • Cons
  • Additional fixed cost of 2.5 million to buy
    this option
  • Opportunity cost of pulling people away from
    other projects
  • Discarding half the craftsmanship in the final
    product

10
Option 3b Over-design
  • Pros (assuming success)
  • E(PM) 2nd highest of options
  • Delay decision/maintain flexibility real
    option
  • Piecewise commitment versus binary choices
  • Cons
  • Additional variable cost, expected to 11
    million, to buy this option
  • Occupies even more space than option 2 and less
    attractive to customers
  • Not transferable to next product line even LiOn
    is successful

Short Term Recommendation
Over Design
The Proof Lies in More Than Just the Numbers.
13
Short Term Recommendation
  • Pros (Dual Development)
  • Creates a high barrier to entry by locking in all
    of Sonys LiOn supply
  • Eliminates the need to forecast future market
    preferences and reduces projects risk of success
  • Able to better capture the VoC
  • Empirical evidence has shown the ability to make
    changes close to product launch is positively
    correlated to increased customer quality and firm
    performance
  • IBM was successful in adopting this strategy
    during initial launch of their personal
    computers.
  • Economic benefit outweighs economic cost

The Proof Lies in More Than Just the Numbers.
14
Long Term Recommendation Benchmark to
Best-in-Class
  • Overall performance difference resides in the
    first three stages of development
  • Design Specification Spending too much
    time upfront trying to predict customer
    requirements
  • Design Development Spending too much time
    designing the perfect prototype
  • Design Verification Spending too much
    time in simulation testing instead of being
    able to modify actual prototypes

15
Flexibility Essential in Rapidly Evolving
Competitive Environments
1
Maintain project fluidity avoid the
Freeze/Thaw syndrome
2
Provide decision support tools that aid designers
and managers in making decisions correctly and
efficiently
3
Make piecewise commitments and avoid the
one-release approach.
4
Apply process metrics to ensure process control
Focus on the Management Process not the
Development Process
