I does quite a bit! What you want to do is create a module. To create a module select the menu item "File->New Module". You will be shown the "New Module" dialog and you can select the module you want to create. In the "New Module" dialog you have to fill in the "Module ID" field (you can type anything in this field) and then the "Create" button will become active. The module ID is used later in scripts and reports. Another way to create a module is to select the menu item "Help->Create Demo Module..." to create a fully populated module.

If you have successfully created modules and your problem lies in understanding how to use them, you will need to consult references on AHP, QFD, or requirements management.

I took a look too. I'm not as qualified though. I downloaded and ran the public beta, and I couldn't really get it to do anything. I'm not sure if it -does- do anything! Can anyone else pitch in on this and tell me if I'm wrong?

I do hardware & software design. Have for many many years. I went to their site & downloaded the user manual, then read through the intro, titled "What Is Compass" (that's its new name, btw).

And I *still* don't know what this thing does.

From concept exploration to implementation, Compass will enable you to do what you do best, design your product. Compass is designed to maximize your productivity through an innovative interface that "gets out of your way" coupled with a fast underlying implementation that won't keep you waiting.

Compass integrates design information into modules. These modules follow industry accepted practices with an easy to use interface that are logically integrated together. Compass is designed from the ground up with expansion in mind. Future versions of Compass will cover both hardware and software design methodologies. Compass is flexible in that you can use as little or as much of Compass's features as you need on a per project basis.

Compass now supports five modules
  • AHP (Analytic Hierarchy Process) Module
  • QFD Phase 1 (Quality Function Deployment) Module
  • Requirements Management Module
  • Reports Module
  • Project Module
