Frustrated by Inconsistent Cost Results?
Complex macroeconomic issues such as those below are making it challenging to predict manufacturing cost as new products move through the development pipeline
Rising Energy Costs & Labor Costs
Commodity Price Fluctuations
Tougher Government Regulations
Consistent Costing Practices Across the Enterprise
To support our vision we are looking at the needs of individuals and the hand offs between departments in a global operating environment. Not only broadening access to cost, but also pushing cost awareness earlier in a development cycle to provide:
EXECUTIVES AND PROGRAM MANAGERS
Executives and Program Managers with real-time visibility to the cost status of any product or project so they can understand where best to direct the team’s efforts,
DESIGNERS AND ENGINEERS
Designers and Engineers with Design to Cost (DTC) and Design for Manufacturability (DFM) guidance that lets them quickly identify and eliminate cost drivers early in the lifecycle,
MANUFACTURING ENGINEERS & SUPPLIERS
Manufacturing Engineers and Suppliers with the ability to provide guidance and collaborate with Designers to improve product manufacturability and drive innovation,
Cost Engineering with collaboration features that help them work efficiently with design and sourcing, and amplify their cost knowledge across the organization.
Sourcing with detailed manufacturing data and should-costs that enable them to have more productive conversations with their strategic suppliers.
