Costing suits to every Organization

5,0 il y a 5 ans

Commentaires : Simple , Agile, On the Fly Costing

Avantages :

1. Software helps to link all the platform available i.e ERP, CFD, SAP system 2. Mode FRONTIER is another that helps to do costing for various parameters thereby helping in achieving the best optimize cost for the required parameter 3. Target Costing/ Value Tracking report helps in the New Product Development 4. Cost Insight design/reporting is another positivity for aPriori which helps to visualize for the business meeting and cost outlier analysis etc..

Inconvénients :

Required good server for the Speed in the costing the parts but aPriori has solution where they are bringing in the Web-Based Costing in near future

It is a One Size Fits All tool for Product Lifecycle

5,0 il y a 3 ans

Commentaires : A great experience working in aPriori and dealing with aPriori support team who is always ready to help and support on all issues. Personally like their professional approach to resolve the issues as soon as possible.

Avantages :

aPriori gives a wide range of options in costing and analysis that is most suitable for all stakeholders during a product development or product improvement lifecycle. It is a great tool in hands of engineers to evaluate early impacts of Cost and also helps understands manufacturing limitations and design rule violations through Design to Cost feedback. Also a great tool to understand alternate design or alternate manufacturing evaluations. It is an essential tool in hands of cost engineers to understand and quickly simulate different scenarios of cost in various regions and various parameters. A great tool for Purchasing to understand the details of cost breakdown and negotiate with suppliers on arguable parameters. aPriori also provides Business Intelligence tool with Cost Insight Reporting that is very much helpful for Project Managers to keep track of the project status and cost targets. Overall, aPriori would be a great tool for any industry that is looking to excel in industry with right evaluated approach and good understanding of Cost of the product. Thank You.

Inconvénients :

There are certain process group not available in aPriori to cost such as Hydraulic Hoses, Black Box, Valves, Assembly/welding tooling etc. These processes are highly used in industries and would be essential to have in aPriori expertise.

aPriori comments

3,0 il y a 2 ans

Commentaires : It's a good upfront design for cost tool. In addition, it's a reasonable should cost & supplier quote analysis tool. The challenge from a team member buy-in standpoint is that we have a few big wins and more cases where we didn't get useful results from aPriori analysis. From an overall perspective, the big wins probably justify the cases where it didn't work out so well, but team members who spent a lot of time & effort without good results get a negative view of aPriori and its capabilities.

Avantages :

Upfront ability to determine costing during the design phase. Objective & detailed analysis of component cost, including optimal processing.

Inconvénients :

In some cases the recommendations from aPriori of diametrically opposed to what we find in our supply base. For example, recommending ductile cast iron over gray cast iron on a pound for pound cost base. We don't have any evidence from our supply base that this is true. This case discouraged use of aPriori for several key team members.

Expert product management tool with focus Engineering

4,0 il y a 10 mois

Commentaires : precise material cost simulations based on 3D CAD models, manufacturing and assembly simulations of more complex assemblies need higher amount of manual adjustment, useful out-of-the-box reports and interfaces with MS Office 365, PLM and ERP

Avantages :

professional expert software with interesting and useful reverse/cost engineering features and interfaces for diverse standard ERP and PLM software, knowledge database and training documentation

Inconvénients :

maintenance, training and customization needs higher amount of (external) expertise and resources

3D model engine makes cost analysis faster

4,0 il y a 4 ans

Commentaires : Fast and easy to use, even for design engineers or buyers. When a cost-structure is well established, it can provide the estimation for all simple mechanical components. The bulk-costing is powerful if well configured.

Avantages :

The 3D model engine can load Step parts/assemblies in seconds, recognizing the manufacturing features such as bending/drilling/machining . This makes the cost estimation automatic and much easier, comparing to other similar software on the market.

Inconvénients :

The annual subscription price is not easy to digest, even for large companies. We had to prepare a good business case to get the approval of purchase.

AGILE COSTING for this modern Technology World- Am Loving it!

5,0 il y a 7 ans

Avantages :

1.Design to Cost Feature- Helps the Design Engineers to know where the cycle time is most and what need to be alter to make the machining cost optimize 2.Process set up Options, helps the Cost engineer to alter or override the feed/speed rate for the machines as per the supplier circumstances to challenge the current price with supplier 3.Interactive Reporting-Helps the reader to understand the important cost drivers and the cost components

Inconvénients :

1.Enhancement required in few Process group such as "Investment Casting", "Powder Metal" which currently is the Basic where we need more Process setup options

aPriori to add to and simulate your digital thread.

Avantages :

The detail and precision of the aPriori digital model is amazing, how you can create a digital twin of a factory floor. And then leverage that with users around the world.

Inconvénients :

This isn’t about aPriori, but one of the most difficult things I’ve noticed about implementing aPriori is the change needed in the business to be able to really get maximum value from the calculations.

A good software with potential but if their focus are the designers they must improve.

4,0 il y a 3 ans

Commentaires : It is a great software but with a lot of details to be polished. One of the main CONS has been to be moved from the desktop version which worked really well to the current cloud version... the change was extremely painful mainly for someone like (design engineer focusing on DFM & DTC) me who are used to work with several simulation tools.
The cloud version works slower and you can have only one session running at the same time (before I was used to have 2-3 sessions in parallel working on different projects) and good look when you need to work with heavy weight parts like perforated parts or parts with repetitive patterns. Before those parts were possible to be quoted running during some hours but now after some hours you will be disconnected by from the amazon server...

Avantages :

In general the possibility to work with a lot of different of manufacturing process for sheet metal (although being honest there are some that are missing...).

Inconvénients :

As an advanced user of aPriori Professional in my organization I can say that a lot of feature are not fully clear at all.

Best Cost Modeling software I've used

4,0 il y a 7 ans

Commentaires : Better predictability on the front end of projects, as well as cost takeouts for existing products.

Avantages :

I like the ability to model costs in numerous scenarios. I also like the ease of how some of the CAD integrated features perform operations rather easily. The ability to customize code is another great positive of this software compared to previous ones I've used.

Inconvénients :

I think more emphasis should be put on data extraction for reports. There seems to be some limitations as to how to get the information out of the system, and the out of the box reports are not sufficient. Also, in order to get better reporting ability by requiring the purchase of a third party report software (Jasper) does not seem to be an appropriate solution, given its limitations.

Commentaires : The tool has been incredibly beneficial to our organization to make better design and sourcing decisions.

Avantages :

It is relatively easy and quick to use to get a rough price for a component without having to go through the time consuming quoting process.

Inconvénients :

It struggles with parts containing tight GD&T. And when upgrading to a new version, it is a challenge to get up and running quickly.
