"We have realized in excess of $10 million in savings and avoidance so far in using Costimator. The savings were identified through design alternatives that we have implemented, as well as through negotiations with our supply base to lower our costs."

OEMs Face Numerous Challenges when Attempting to Lower Product Costs

Design

As a design engineer you’re now being asked to design to a cost target but have no way of generating reliable cost estimates, leading to:
  • Higher than needed part costs
  • Delayed product launches
  • Costly re-design activities

Procurement

As a buyer you’re being tasked by management to drive down product costs.

 

Today, the only way you have to estimate what a part should cost to manufacture is what the company paid in the past for similar parts (if available) or what your supply base is quoting, neither of which can be relied upon to produce an accurate should cost.
