Product Costing

Understanding the cost structure of components made in-house or procured externally is often crucial in determining whether a product is successful in the market in the long term. In order to ensure this is the case, continuous optimisation is a topic which must always be addressed under cost engineering.

Irrespective of the phase in the product life cycle, product costing allows in-depth insights into cost allocation and value management. With the aid of the cost analyses, price-drivers can be clearly identified at any time, general cost reduction potential ascertained and implementation planned.

Detailed
knowledge base

In order to create full cost transparency, you can rely on our strong multi-disciplinary team of specialists. To implement the costing and to optimise the product costs, we also have our in-house costing tool in addition to our own workshops and laboratories for dismantling products. The tool contains data from a current and reliable knowledge base covering all relevant cost factors (material prices, machine data, wage costs, overhead costs etc.).
