Important to the perception process are the so-called key informations, which save the consumer a further search and processing of information. In general, the appearance of fruit and vegetables is the dominant criterion for consumer perception. However, in the case of tomatoes, a significant segment of the consumer population may use the information on the origin and the production method as additional information. In the apple market important information is the variety, especially in the case of familiar varieties such as Cox Orange and Booskop. If a product image is positive (negative), the consumer tends to exhibit a selective perception of the positive (negative) product properties which leads to a perception distortion and a stabilization of the positive (negative) image. Taste tests with identical tomatoes with different origin labels show that these so-called halo-effects exist in the tomato market. The taste perception of organic and/or field grown tomatoes is distorted in a positive direction, while glasshouse tomatoes demonstrate a negative halo-effect. Taste tests with apples show a positive halo-effect for the familiar varieties such as Booskop and Cox Orange. Consumer Perception Theory (CPT) illustrates and explains one method through which advertising is effective. There are two basic

concepts that need to be accepted in order for CPT to be understood: cultural filtration, perceptual reality. Cultural filtration is simply the reason that people perceive day to day life differently from one another. Each person is unique and has had a unique set of life events that shape the way they experience. An easy way of understanding cultural filtration is by comparing the cultural filter to a pair of sunglasses. When we wear tinted glasses we view the world as being the color of the lens, the same applies with our cultural filters. We gather our experiences on a wide variety of topics (politics, education, experience, vocabulary, travel, geographic location, cultural knowledge, tradition, family, heritage, race, ethnicity, sexuality, habits, etc) and form our own unique cultural filter. It is through this unique filter that we experience everything, including advertising. In the model above the pink tinted rectangle represents the cultural filter. With cultural filtration in place, we can proceed through the steps of the model which define the theory. The process of CPT starts with the consumer: an individual toward which the message is directed. The consumer must first have a perceived need or want, then actively experience an advertisement in the product category where the need or want exists. It is a catalyst for the model if this advertisement occurs at strategic timing in the process. After exposure, the consumer forms an opinion about the product. This perception becomes the reality of that product to the consumer. It is

possible that this truth could change with exposure to competitive messages from a wide variety of sources (other media, friends, advice columns etc). If, however, the product is perceived, and therefore assigned the truth, of being positive it is then evaluated as to whether or not it fills the need or want. If it does indeed fit the need, it is likely that the consumer will proceed to the purchase stage of the model. In the purchase stage the consumer decides to purchase or not to purchase the product. Again, there are a number of variables surrounding this decision, as surround each step and decision in the model.

The Product Development Process is such that TIME TO MARKET is drastically reduced and the products are FIRST TIME RIGHT & ALL TIME RELIABLE. For achieving the above, the Cross Functional Teams use contemporary Design Tools, Techniques & Initiatives like QFD (Quality Function Deployment), CE (Concurrent Engineering), DOE (Design of Experiments), PST (Problem Solving Techniques), VE (Value Analysis & Engineering), Benchmarking, FMEA (Failure Mode and Effects Analysis) etc. The deployment

and use of state-of-the-art CAD software, Pro ENGINEER, helps 3D Modeling and subsequent analysis, verification and validation of the design.

Researcher doing the Project on Consumer Perception of AirCoolers with special reference to Symphony Air-Cooler. There are different brand of Air-Cooler available in Bhubaneswar city. Out of these brand Symphony Sales maximum cooler in Bhubaneswar Market. So the Consumer Perception about Symphony Cooler is good.
