Manufacturing cost is the main parameter used to measure profitability or to define the pricing policy, but costing electronic systems is a complex task. Defining the cost of an electronic system requires an estimation of all component costs, including PCB, housing and connectors, and a simulation of the cost of the assembly and test process at the board and system level. The costing modules included in SYScost+ answer all these requirements and help costing engineers get accurate calculations.

SYScost+ is flexible in order to be used in multiple applications.

  • Manufacturing companies can use this tool to prepare quotations or optimize costs after simulating different manufacturing options.
  • Marketing departments are able to assess the manufacturing cost of products available on the market, including cost by function, in order to define a product range.
  • It is also of great help for purchasing managers in fabless or non-electronic companies who want to understand their supplier’s costs.

Smart BoM builder

  • Global system article tree edition using a graphical interface.
  • Article parts can be easily called from browsers, making possible function by function BoM edition.
  • Parts database is enhanced from additional projects and input fields values are preset from a minimum of input data.

Effective purchasing price search tool

  • Working with many price tables, price search can be automated using multiple criteria.
  • Price database allows pricing of standard components and price quotation management.
  • Price simulation can be made from fine-tuning rules, and the number of quotation requests can be reduced.

PCB manufacturing cost simulation

  • SYScost+ includes a PCB cost simulation tool.
  • PCB cost and price can be calculated from a small amount of input data.

Generally applicable assembly cost simulation

  • SYScost+ includes a process-based added value calculation tool, allowing cost simulation of any user defined assembly process.
  • Reference processes stored in the database are used for specific projects, for example: added value will be recalculated from the particular article BoM, workshop type and country related costs, and can be recalculated with just a few clicks after changing any input, such as the manufacturing country.

Customizable and opened output format

  • All results outputs are MS-Excel files.
  • User can create his own format and share it with other users.

Workgroup-compliant, safely

  • All the data managed by SYScost+ are stored in an external MS-Access™ database file.
  • Maintenance tools are included.
