FACTON, the leader in Enterprise Product Costing (EPC), today announced that Chief Executive Officer Alexander M. Swoboda will make a presentation at the Automotive Cost Engineering Conference on October 24, 2017 in Detroit. The conference is titled “Creating a Transparent & Cost Effective Automotive Supply Chain,” and includes speakers from Nissan, Ford, and a wide range of Tier 1 suppliers. FACTON is the lead sponsor of this event.

Swoboda’s presentation is titled, “The Better You Are at Costing, the Better You Are at Quoting.” It focuses on best practices in estimating and tracking costs for quoting and contracting purposes, with a special emphasis on the automotive industry.


“Suppliers who fully understand their internal costs are better at delivering accurate, timely quotes,” said Swoboda. “A high degree of accuracy and transparency builds a fundamental trust relationship between a supplier and a customer, and is highly sought after by OEMs in the automotive industry. I’m excited to talk about best practices in costing, quoting, and building relationships at this event.”
