Plastics, Rubber & Glass

If you’re in the plastics, rubber or glass industries, you deal with volatility of raw material prices, costs of new equipment, amortization of tools and dies and changing labor rates. To remain competitive in an environment with a proliferation of products, short lead times and compressed prices, you must be able to calculate detailed cost and profits. ImpactECS connects existing data and systems to calculate detailed product costs and variances, determine profits by product or customer, run simulations for planning, analyze supply chains, or other important analytics activities.
