Deployment Strategy & Best Practices
Product Cost Management (PCM) has historically been the responsibility of a relatively small team of specialized cost engineering and/or sourcing resources using homegrown or specialized desktop software to analyze product cost.
A successful enterprise-wide PCM deployment strategy requires careful consideration and planning for how all members of a global product team and supply chain will work together in unison to leverage the power of the aPriori technology platform. This will have a direct impact on your ability to achieve your goals of improved profitability and accelerated time-to-market. Most manufacturers have little to no experience implementing a strategic PCM initiative on this scale.
