Compatibility advisors display relevant results to users. During inventory searches or product assembly, predetermined filter parameters display relevant content based on the previous selection. The parameters for filters are updated either automatically upon product addition, or manually based on situational requirements. These tools were designed for multiple applications including:
Interactive product assembly and component selection: Users building products using online tools would only see content relevant to their current selection. The predefined parameters eliminate the possibility of errors in the product assembly process due to automatic filtering of incompatible items as product building progresses from one stage to the next. This ensures accuracy during the process by eliminating human involvement from item recommendations.
Inventory management and catalogue: The implementation of such advisors significantly improves the organization of products within an inventory or catalogue for added accessibility while browsing. In special circumstances (eg: North American Steel) these filters assisted in the classification of assemblies and components based on their compatibility with each other.
Compatibility tools were designed to meet the complex requirements of various clients. These advisors were built with automatic filter generation and item selection capabilities. Systems that were upgraded with such compatibility features showed improvements in the overall experience for users in online product and assembly building as well as browsing through catalogues.
Clients for which these advisors were designed benefited from a reduction in errors and a smoother, more user-friendly experience. Additionally, various systems could be integrated with the compatibility filters, resulting in company-wide improvements to accessibility wherever they were implemented.Talk to an Expert
