Effectively knowing costing and having cost estimating skills early on in any manufacturing related career, can help American manufacturers increase their overall competitiveness. This program provides a faster way for more students to be more successfully trained through the Costimator® software used today by manufacturing suppliers and OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) worldwide.
“Our business relies on Costimator! As estimators leave our company we need to replace them. It’s great to hear that MTI Systems is helping to increase cost estimating training for college students on the cost estimating software we use. Costing and a high focus on cost reductions should be at the forefront of every manufacturing employee. Their new program can save us significant time during our hiring and employee training process, as well as, in hiring more cost savvy employees. Saving time converts to saving money. Just one more thing they [MTI System] does to help us be more competitive in our marketplace. Thanks MTI Systems!”
