LeanCOST provides a detailed cost estimate from the early stages of design
“Thanks to LeanCOST, it is no longer necessary to complete the analysis to get a detailed cost estimation. Nowadays it is possible to get a realistic analysis of the project’s final cost from the earliest stages of design”.
Operations Manager – Loccioni Group
The Loccioni Group designs and develops measurement and control automatic systems to improve the quality and efficiency of products and processes in different business areas including energy, environment, industry, healthcare, mobility, transport, aerospace. The company tailors each project to the customer, integrating the best skills and technologies and building long-term relationships with customers and suppliers.
Loccioni Group has a need to increase the amount of managed annual codes and to strengthen the number of suppliers for metal cutting and carpentry. They must do this while also reducing costs and time associated with the phases of design, supply, assembly, and distribution. To meet Target Cost and provide customers with the required solution, the company must optimize the output costs of the entire commissioned project beginning with the earliest design phases.
Today LeanCOST, installed in several workstations, is an important tool to support the day-to-day operations of designing and sourcing departments. By opening any CAD file as an input to the costing process, all users can calculate detailed cost estimation and develop a cost-conscious culture, improving profitability and offering more value to customers. The Loccioni Group achieved important benefits:
- Designer awareness of the cost issue with application of Design to Cost principles;
- Increased knowledge on manufacturing technologies;
- Real-time and fast estimation of the cost implications of product changes;
- Standardization of enterprise costing methods.
