The company needs
The big amount of offers to send to customers and the lack of a standardized method for the estimation of manufacturing costs led the company to choose LeanCOST as a shared and reliable software tool ready to satisfy the company needs. The necessity – at the beginning shown by sales office – was to achieve a lean, objective, and analytical costing process that may have a lower risk and may be independent of the other business units. Besides, the high level of details of the products makes the estimation of manufacturing costs a difficult and expensive activity for 3F INGRANAGGI. In this context, 3F INGRANAGGI needs a target cost available from the first negotiations to reduce waste of time and resources. Indeed, it was looking for a flexible and reliable tool to satisfy the company needs.
LeanCOST makes product cost estimation a leaner activity and speeds up products delivery by saving time and costs
These are the words of the Sales Director at 3F INGRANAGGI, which chose LeanCOST as their solution for design to cost. LeanCOST is currently used in a shared manner by the sales office and the production area; it provides a set of detailed and accurate data, allows preparing precise and objective estimates, simplifies the collaboration with customers and supplier, and improves the information exchange, within the several units.
