Piece Cost Estimation

In today’s competitive market, profits and losses are determined by the ability to estimate piece costs early in the planning and bidding phase. With ever shorter delivery times and more and more competitive prices, the automotive industry is facing almost impossible challenges. Engineers must deal with questions regarding piece costs on a daily basis. They must be prepared to face concerns such as how can costs be reliably predicted before process engineering has started, what assumptions should the quote be based on or how should these figures be adjusted to take into account changes in product, process or market conditions.

AutoForm’s software enables rapid and transparent cost estimation associated with the production of automotive body parts. The software speeds up the cost estimation process with the automatic detection of part geometry features and an embedded costing engine for stamping operations. As a result, up to a hundred cost estimations can be made a day, enabling you to meet deadlines for budgets, resource plans and quotations. With our software, you benefit from early cost estimation as estimates can be generated already as early as in the planning and bidding phase.
