FACTON to Host Tech Takeover at Automation Alley on “Manufacturing Made Easier with Smart Product Costing Tools”


FACTON, the leader in Enterprise Product Costing (EPC), today announced the company is hosting a “Tech Takeover” event at Automation Alley headquarters in Troy, Michigan on February 7, 2018. The topic for the event is “Manufacturing Made Easier with Smart Product Costing Tools.”

How do manufacturers like Ford, Airbus and Porsche achieve cost accuracy and secure profitability? By using Industry 4.0 data analysis software tools to implement product cost transparency throughout every phase of the product lifecycle.


Join Automation Alley and the experts at FACTON for a Tech Takeover presentation aimed at helping manufacturers learn the best practices in costing and quoting in support of new business pursuits.


FACTON President North America Ruediger Stern commented, “Automation Alley is the premier organization for knowledge exchange within the automotive community, and we’re excited to work with them to present this important topic. Our research shows that suppliers that deliver accurate, timely quotes - and who can support their work when the inevitable questions are asked -  are more likely to win new business. At the Tech Takeover, we’ll be talking about how to move from labor-intensive processes and spreadsheets to best practices with a true enterprise solution for costing and quoting.”
