Fairchild Semiconductor

Project Overview: How Fairchild Semiconductor uses ImpactECS

By selecting ImpactECS, Fairchild moved from a reactionary to proactive approach to costing and profitability by creating exposure to the true costs of manufacturing their products. ¬†With ImpactECS, Fairchild’s team gained access to:
– Detailed actual costing using ABC methodology to get accurate, granular product costs for each unique SKU

– Alignment of costing rules for six different fabrication plants to drive consistency

– Product line profit & loss statements based on actual unit costs

– Developed standard machine hour rates for each product

– Improved allocation process to trace spending from MED to product P&L

– Increased visibility into cost drivers through process cost drill-down into direct spending line items
