aPriori provides discrete manufacturers and product innovation companies with the most technologically advanced and comprehensive product cost management software and service solutions available on the market today. These solutions fundamentally change the way companies calculate and manage product costs, enabling more informed design, manufacturing and sourcing decisions that drive significant cost out of products, both pre- and post-production.
aPriori enables its customers to analyze cost quickly and accurately in real-time, at the lowest level of product detail based on:
• What’s being manufactured – aPriori can create highly detailed part and product cost assessments in real-time from any 3D solid CAD model.
• How it’s being manufactured - aPriori has deep domain expertise in the manufacturing processes, sequencing and cost drivers that impact product costs.
• Where it’s being manufactured – aPriori closely tracks cost of labor, overhead and goods in six different geographical locations around the world, and provides this data as part of its Virtual Production Environments (VPEs) that are delivered to customers as part of the base product.
