Cost-management program adds cost-driver data analysis.

An enterprise product cost-management software platform has added the capability to deliver timely and actionable product cost and profitability data to engineering, manufacturing, and sourcing departments. Cost Insight by aPriori, Concord, Mass., gives processors real-time access to detailed product cost information. The software utilizes CAD and "intelligent cost models" to determine feasible manufacturing methods and product costs while generating manufacturing analysis and cost estimates that quantify the impact of changes to product design, materials, manufacturing processes, volumes, and production location. It also enables manufacturers to leverage product cost data hosted in other enterprise applications, such as importing bills of materials from ERP, PLM or other enterprise applications.

The system is completely web-enabled for anytime/anywhere access, including mobile. Reporting of product data at the component and process/operation level is possible, including production, ad hoc, and dashboard reports.
