In a highly price-competitive electronics & semiconductor market where unit cost is very important decision factor in a high-volume contract, cost analysis, management and visibility are critical to securing sourcing opportunities while maintaining profitability.

To help you develop accurate and repeatable costing models that take into account multiple costing factors from materials, tooling, manufacturing processes and the value chain, Siemens PLM Software offers an integrated product cost management solution that combines the power of the world’s leading Digital Enterprise Platform with sophisticated product cost management tools all in one system.

Our solution encompasses product costing during new product introduction as product cost forecast and gets refined to actual cost and location during volume manufacturing. This improves management, visibility and insight into product cost drivers, including materials, logistics, labor, machinery, processes and product unit volumes.

Our unified solutions for the electronics & semiconductor industry accelerate the NPDI process so you can get products to market faster while reducing costs and increasing product quality. By optimizing your NPDI cost and risk management process, you will create better products, capture market share, gain customer loyalty and achieve digital breakthroughs.

Solution Capabilities

Bill of Materials Management

Teamcenter helps you know your product by providing a common source of BOM information across your organization. Whether you need basic BOM management, or more advanced BOM management and configuration with greater flexibility and scalability, you can meet and exceed the market demand for more innovative and varied product offerings.

Design-to-Cost

You can represent the entire price structure of your products in Teamcenter product costing, and cost engineers can see the impact of development-related changes on the price at any time. You can identify the cost drivers early in the development process, and suggest alternative solutions. With the opportunities for cost simulation in Teamcenter product costing, such as comparison of manufacturing technologies, you can also reproduce different scenarios for manufacturing.

Profitability Calculation

With the profitability calculation, executives can secure product investments by predicting future unit costs and prices over the entire product lifecycle. You can transparently break down annual costs, revenues, and cash flows and provide the basis for relevant indicators, such as internal rate of return, net present value, and payback periods. Using the discounted cash-flow calculation, you can determine the profitability of your projects and compare projects to make the best investment decisions.

Purchase Price Analysis

With the purchase price analysis included with Teamcenter product costing, as a buyer or procurement officer, you can run reliable cost estimates of supplier parts on different commodities ("shadow calculations"). Teamcenter product costing also helps you in cost structure negotiations and value engineering workshops with suppliers. Based on these cost estimates, you can negotiate future target prices or purchase prices based on reliable cost details. If desired, you can establish an open-book policy.

Quotation Costing

Teamcenter product costing supports in increasing speed and accuracy of request-of-quotation responses which helps companies to win more business. It helps you negotiate with your customers using "optimized but comprehensible" cost data in customized formats. You can use and explain this data in open-book conversations with the customer’s costs experts to establish your price. By presenting a clear cost structure and plausible breakdown of the product costs, you have a stronger negotiating position in cost negotiations.

Target Costing

Cost engineers can use Teamcenter product costing to determine product cost in the early stages of preliminary costing and target costing. You can calculate complex assemblies and versions accurately and quickly. The entire price structure of your products and variants based on the bills of materials and bills of process can be reproduced. You can also determine and itemize direct costs and overheads, manufacturing steps and processes, and materials and process parameters.

Tool Purchase Price Analysis

For the tasks within the purchase price analysis, cost engineers can use the Teamcenter solution for tool costing to do shadow calculations as a plausibility check on the calculations of their suppliers. They can use Teamcenter tool costing information such as technology data, part descriptions or 3D-data to create cost calculations using the parametric methodology.

Tool Quotation Costing

The quoting process for tooling must be reliable and inexpensive, with precise tool calculations and transparent cost breakdowns in a short time frame. The parametric calculation methodology in Teamcenter tool costing enables an optimum balance between accuracy and time-based calculation effort.
