Typical star­ting point of client

  • Nego­tia­tions with suppliers are conducted without the client knowing about the actual produc­tion costs and cost drivers contained in the product (like mate­rial costs, manu­fac­tu­ring costs, indi­rect costs)
  • Products are deve­loped based on a merely tech­nical speci­fi­ca­tion without veri­fying whether or not the target costs will be achieved
  • The deci­sion whether compon­ents are bought or manu­fac­tured is often not based on reliable facts

Inno­va­tive approach

  • the calcu­la­tion soft­ware makes a profes­sional calcu­la­tion of product costs possible which has the follo­wing advan­tages:
    • quick, trans­pa­rent and compre­hen­sible calcu­la­tion of product costs due to an intui­tive user inter­face
    • quar­terly updated and complete data­bases for mate­rial, facto­ries, personnel and indi­rect costs
    • exten­sive PDF report of the calcu­la­tion which can be used e.g. for discus­sions with suppliers
    • Scen­a­rios for diffe­rent produc­tion sites or diffe­rent annual quan­ti­ties can be simu­lated

Typical effect/result

  • Across indu­stries, costs for existing products are reduced by more than 20%
  • By applying the soft­ware during product deve­lop­ment, clients assure that the products are cost-opti­mised when ente­ring the market and that the target costs will be achieved
