For the R&D Manager

We help you avoid extra costs during the product life cycle by making sure that all components have optimal performance and that they meet your cost and customer requirements.

The initial stage is very critical

When the market analysts have determined a new product's features and target price, it is up to R&D to develop the product within the given time and cost frames. The initial stage when the key components are chosen is very critical and should be aligned with sourcing team. Early involvement from the sourcing team is essential to ensure competitive component pricing. We can support your team with Should Cost analytics during the full design project to ensure that the target price is met.

You can avoid unnecessary extra costs

Design changes that have been performed due to components reaching their end of life cycle are costly. We can perform an end-of-life analysis on products in the development phase, thus avoiding unnecessary extra costs. It is also recommendable to make a product ability analysis, which saves time and costs as well as minimizes the number of prototypes.
