With 80% of costs locked in during design, should cost analysis gives you the ability to analyze the true costs of a new product long before it is ever produced. Custom, engineer-to-order, and contract manufacturers use should costing programs to align product development, engineering, manufacturing, and sourcing groups to determine expected component and product costs before engaging any vendors in an RFQ process.
ImpactECS combines cost data including raw material costs, labor rates, overhead costs, and profit margin requirements to model product costs and identify cost drivers in a meaningful way. You can improve vendor negotiations, identify cost reduction opportunities, drive pricing decisions, and evaluate profits by unique product. ImpactECS provides the platform to perform fact-based cost comparisons to find the right materials, processes, and strategic partners.

For custom, engineer-to-order, and other environments where customer requirements dictate production – the “product” exists only when an order is placed. To get the detailed and vital cost information needed to set prices and protect margins while covering costs, companies use ImpactECS to establish a robust costing estimating process.
