Explore the key areas of this solution.
Estimate cost of new semiconductor devices early in product realization cycle by simulating different variants for bill-of-information based on manufacturing recipes and production scenarios.
Predict future device unit costs and prices across the entire product lifecycle by breaking down annual costs, revenues and cash flows to make the best investment decisions.
Know what a purchased material should cost by running cost estimates on different resources used in the manufacturing of semiconductor devices. Negotiate future target prices based on reliable assessments.
Identify cost drivers in semiconductor devices early in the development process and assess alternative solutions. Evaluate different manufacturing scenarios and see the impact of changes using cost simulation.
Enable a stronger position in cost negotiations by presenting a clear and optimized cost structure, using a plausible breakdown of product costs in formats customized for semiconductor device manufacturing.
React quickly to changes in design and manufacturing processes by obtaining recipe information and product design data directly from the PLM system for product and tool cost calculations.
In a highly price-competitive semiconductor device 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 Innovation 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 device fabrication cost drivers, including materials, shipping, labor, machinery, processes and product unit volumes.
Our unified solutions for the 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.
