aPriori’s revolutionary capabilities can instantly (and precisely) determine the cost of a part or product from a CAD model, the materials to be used and the factory where it will be produced. Now, with a click of a button, organizations can get a precise, real-time cost assessment for any product at any time during the design, manufacturing planning or production process.

Through aPriori’s real-time, precise product cost assessments, everyone in an organization who impacts or manages cost – including design engineering, manufacturing, sourcing, cost management, finance and management -- always understands the ramifications of every product-related decision they make. As changes are made to designs, materials, manufacturing processes, factory locations and more, aPriori automatically re-assesses the product and provides an updated product cost. Using this new level of cost knowledge, aPriori customers make better product-cost decisions to significantly reduce the cost of their products.

With aPriori, organizations are realizing hard-dollar savings that measurably impact overall financial results. aPriori helps it customers measurable increase profit by:

  • Reducing Cost of Goods Sold – by lowering product costs (material, labor, overhead)

  • Increasing Revenue – through faster time-to-market achieved by streamlining quoting and costing processes

  • Decreasing SG&A Expenses – by eliminating the need for post-launch re-design and re-sourcing activities, and reducing late-stage engineering changes
