THE FIRST COSTING TOOL THAT IS FULLY NETWORKED ACROSS THE SUPPLY CHAIN.

Product teams often lack the resources to accurately investigate the manufactured cost of products they are designing. With a should cost model in place, engineering and procurement can work together in near-real time to understand the manufactured should cost as the product goes through the design cycle.

Speed

In Makersite Costing, parts in a BOM are linked to production chains with existing cost-models. As a result, cost estimates are taken down to minutes vs. offline calculations, that typically take weeks to complete.

Transparency

Makersite decomposes costs across resource requirements and overheads of each production process in a supply network. Establishing a transparent baseline quickly helps analyze cost drivers, calculate target cost, and take action to protect margins.

Scale

Once models are created, they are automatically available for subsequent analyses. Through a live model of the product and its value-chain, changes are dynamically reflected in all derivative product models. Product models can be enriched by team members, staff or ext. consultants in real-time. That way your organization gets smarter, faster.

Data and tools to protect margins

Whether you make propulsion engines, paint, or pizzas – companies in
almost any industry benefits from Design-to-Value (DtV) and Should-Cost
modeling.

The modern, digitized and sustainable business is networked and agile. Traditional product costing tools from the 90s were not built that way. They are painfully complicated, slow, and limited in scope. The Makersite costing apps are fully networked across the supply chain for should-cost analysis.

Should-Costs and Design-to-Value

In Makersite’s Dynamic Should-Costing, parts in a BOM can be linked to production chains with existing cost-models. As a result, cost estimates are taken down to minutes vs. offline calculations, that typically take weeks to complete.

Makersite is the largest open platform on the web on how products are made and used. You can look up product profiles, model alternative designs, and work with others to innovate faster, buy smarter, and be sustainable.

Transparency

Makersite makes it easier to establish cost transparency, analyze cost drivers, calculate the target cost, and benefits from those insights.

Live feeds

Live connection to an increasing database of suppliers and their current customers to indentify cheaper/more reliable alternatives effectively.

People, Planet, Profit

Product costs can be viewed together with other other cost drivers, such as compliance risks, environmental impacts, and carbon costs. A local view of facilities in the supply chain can reveal social risks, such as human health risks.
