Enterprise platform automates cost estimating; provides visibility to
cross-functional product development teams; multiplies cost savings
One of aPriori’s unique differentiators is that the software can leverage both 3D solid CAD models and engineering knowledge and experience to automatically generate detailed manufacturing analysis and cost estimates that quantify the impact of changes to product design, materials, manufacturing processes, volumes and location in real time. This flexible approach to generating cost estimates was one of the key reasons why Whirlpool selected aPriori.
In addition, the software enables users to leverage product cost data hosted in other enterprise applications to calculate costs and communicate product cost information between all functional organizations involved in product definition and delivery. This includes the import of complex engineering Bills of Materials (BOMs) from ERP, PLM or other enterprise applications.
“Whirlpool has a long history of manufacturing excellence and a strong discipline around cost and quality which is helping them deliver leading products and innovations that matter to their consumers,” said
aPriori software and services generate hard-dollar product cost savings for discrete manufacturing and product innovation companies. Using aPriori’s real-time product cost assessments, employees in engineering, sourcing and manufacturing make more-informed decisions that drive costs out of products pre- and post-production. With aPriori, manufacturers launch products at cost targets, maximize savings in re-work projects and avoid overpaying for sourced parts.
