Product cost reduction
Value and cost analyses, variants management, standardization
Product cost optimization with ConMoto’s Design-to-Cost approach means: you increase your product value and simultaneously meet clearly defined cost targets. We streamline all measures to reduce product costs to your specific requirements. Our methods and concepts include product value design, complexity reduction, modularization, modular system management and target cost models as well as procurement and production optimization.
In our projects we bring together employees from the research and development department as well as production, procurement and sales to put a broad knowledge base to work for exploiting cost-cutting potentials. In addition, we also involve customers and key suppliers.
Meet your target costs with optimized functionality
Our common goals are innovative product design, functionality and sustainability. Combined with optimized product costs, marketable products render the economic success of your company possible by yielding a high profit margin. But ConMoto’s consulting projects do not stop at having great ideas. We accompany you all the way to their implementation – with measurable results. Together, we achieve savings in product costs of 25 to 55 percent, depending on the industry sector. Please contact us for project references in different industries: firstname.lastname@example.org
In our Design-To-Cost projects, we go well beyond the efforts of other management consultancies. Our structured approach enables a targeted knowledge transfer and sparks the creativity of your employees. We combine value and functional cost analysis in tear-down workshops with creativity techniques such as open innovation as well as design thinking methods and include agile project management tools. In doing so, procurement often plays a central role as an integrator.
