The integration of cognitive functions into products and systems is often an intuitive-driven process. The results are often influenced by the designers and their environment, experience and expertise. The systematic integration of cognitive functions is important to exploit the whole solution space and make conscious decisions. This paper presents and evaluates a formal approach that supports the systematic integration of cognitive functions into product concepts. A holistic procedural model is presented and linked to methods that assist the implementation of single procedural steps.
