FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Is your company struggling to understand the cost of changes implemented during the New Product Introduction (NPI) process?

  • What happens if I change the product design? Did the cost go up or down?
  • What happens to the cost of my design if we change the material from aluminum to steel?
  • How much savings can we get if we make 50,000 vs. 100?
  • If I use a die casting process instead of a sand casting process, will this reduce my cost?
  • What will happen to the cost if we move the manufacturing of our product from India to Vietnam?

Until now, most software applications that attempted to provide the cost of a manufactured part required large amounts of data input each time a new estimate was required. Furthermore, these products could only be used by a handful of specialists that required extensive training to be productive with the application.
