Manufacturing cost modelers drive cost out of your manufacturing product portfolio

Better cash conversion with our manufacturing spend cost modelers helps OEMs save between 5% and 15% of total EMS program costs

WE ANALYZED 3,000+ EMS manufacturing sales quotes for OEM programs ranging from NPI to large-scale manufacturing and this includes highly complex systems builds across multiple factories and geographies.

Our outsource manufacturing cost models help OEM manufacturers identify excessive supplier costs and drive savings (lower spend) when sourcing contract EMS manufacturing services.

Every customized manufacturing spend modeler is accompanied with training where we walk you through how to use your manufacturing spend modeler to justify cost reductions, and we show you your ROI, in detail. Clients can then use their cost models to keep their EMS manufacturers on their heels when negotiating cost reductions and pricing of EMS fees.

Our data-driven cost models simulate your EMS manufacturer’s business and can accurately compute all costs surrounding the manufacturing of your outsourcing programs.

Here is what we will need to build your custom manufacturing spend model:

  1. Costed BOM
  2. Process checklist

So if you are interested in working with us to create a contract manufacturing spend model for you, project deliverables will include the following:

  1. We determine your EMS manufacturer’s true internal costs for your program
  2. We identify your EMS manufacturer’s inefficiencies for your program
  3. We show you where your EMS manufacturer hides profits, double-dips, triple-dips with excessive fees and markups
  4. We show you what your unit total landed best strike price (cost) should be
  5. We teach you how to leverage outputs from your manufacturing spend model so you know where, and how, to drive down your product unit cost to get closer to actual EMS manufacturer internal costs
  6. We show you where to focus in your quote, and how, to position your company during contract negotiations (or re-negotiations) to so you can justify these cost reductions with your EMS manufacturer and reduce your manufacturing spend
  7. We show you how, and when, you will achieve ROI using your contract manufacturing spend model
  8. We show you how to edit and use your model to drive down costs with future programs

Manufacturers using our data-driven models are able to enter an RFQ phase, armed with more information than the EMS manufacturer itself.

On average, our models can save you on new programs, and existing programs, anywhere between 5% and 15%+ of your program cost and total EMS spend.
