Perceptual Map – Information

What is the Perceptual Map?

The perceptual map is a visual representation of the five different customer segments based on how specialized these customers want their product to be.

For example, some customers want higher performance and smaller size than other customers, so they are grouped in a segment called the ‘High End’. Other customers don’t mind about the size but want really good performance, so they are grouped in a segment called ‘Performance’, and so on.

Just like in real life, over time all customers’ expectations move toward better products, which in the simulation means smaller and higher performance.

The animation below shows the moving expectations of customers, called ‘Segment Drift’:

For more details about the drift rates in the perceptual map, please refer to the section titled ‘Drift Rates’ in the Industry Conditions Report.

How can I use the Perceptual Map?

The Research & Development Department can use the Perceptual Map exercise to plan revision and invention projects that meet customers shifting size and performance expectations.

The Marketing Department can use the results during forecasting as they compare competing products and when determining prices (in general, better positioned products can command higher prices).
