Thanks to the close cooperation between 4cost GmbH and the digiZ | Digitalisierungszentrum Ostwürttemberg, companies in East Württemberg will now benefit and also have the opportunity to experience the advantages of parametric cost calculation. The software packages used by the digiZ are the 4cost-aces and 4cost-scenarioanalyser. Both tools enable users to make valid and quick cost estimates in early phases with only limited information available.

“Following an impressive and successful workshop, we decided in favour of 4cost’s software solutions for the Bremen location. The consistent calculation method of the 4cost tools convinced us right from the start. Very quickly we realised, that this methodology supports our needs in calculation, value engineering, purchasing and engineering excellently,” says Frank Hoffmann, Head of Supply Chain Management at Rheinmetall Electronics.

Rolls-Royce

The 4cost GmbH has proven to be a valuable partner in several projects with its specially developed calculation tools for early cost estimation. A senior purchasing executive at Rolls-Royce concluded: “It is well known that the earlier cost transparency is established, the longer the leverage for cost optimisation. However, it is particularly challenging to establish good and reliable costs in the early stages of new projects. With 4cost’s modern parametric calculation models, however, it is possible to estimate good and valid costs already in phases with limited detail of knowledge.

AIRBUS Germany

The 4cost-aces calculation software is used in the area of “Costing” at Airbus Operations Germany. The main focus of using the application is the evaluation of aircraft systems. Especially in the early development phase. This shows that with 4cost-aces and the help of inbuild wizards, a fairly exact picture of a possible technical and industrial solution can be depicted.
