Outsourcing Calculator for OEMs

The biggest cost for most OEMs engaging electronics contract manufacturing partners is their materials cost of goods sold (MCOGs) for products being manufactured. The Outsourcing Calculator can help OEMs uncover and lower costs, and potentially increase OEM savings, as you evaluate EMS and ODM companies in low-cost and other manufacturing destinations.
