aPriori empowers discrete manufacturers with the knowledge to control costs before it matters. We achieve this through the science of product cost management which is key to aligning actual costs to target costs.
The new integrated costing tool with SOLIDWORKS® Premium 2012 lets you quickly estimate costs for sheetmetal and machined components using built-in templates or customized data. You can calculate manufacturing costs throughout design to stay on budget. No other CAD program has this capability!
aPriori's new Geometry Analysis Tool with cost "heat map" enables engineers to quickly identify the geometric cost drivers (GCDs) that are most expensive to manufacture.
aPriori product cost management provides a standard technology platform that can be used by engineering, sourcing, finance and manufacturing to understand how their daily decisions on new product initiatives, value engineering projects and sourcing strategies impact product cost.
