FACTON EPC Cost Controlling assists controllers in analysing and optimising product costs –

by means of design-to-cost, target costing, investment appraisal, and many more useful methods

FACTON EPC Cost Controlling not only supports the more conventional methods of design-to-cost, target costing, and investment appraisal, but also caters for the comparison and evaluation of various technical solutions, version comparisons, and global data maintenance that assist controllers in their job.

FACTON has specifically been designed to assist the controlling processes. The EPC software enables companies to analyse and optimise their product costs across the entire lifecycle in a most efficient and accurate manner. 


Example: Accurate investment appraisals

For investment appraisals, FACTON EPC Cost Controlling provides all key indicators and figures such as the capital asset value, the pay-back period, and the return on investment necessary for the accurate calculation of the profitability of one or more projects. At the push of a button, the software produces overviews of all capital investments across the entire company, or in a particular area such as tools, including all relevant details on the use of the equipment. In addition, investment costs and reimbursements can be distributed and managed through the investment dialogue (project cockpit). For subsequent evaluation, users can produce standardised reports in .pdf, .xls, or .html format that are also available as previews.


FACTON EPC Cost Controlling lifts controlling to a different level

Apart from conventional costing methods, FACTON EPC Cost Controlling offers controllers a range of advanced functions:


  • Cost appraisals of various technical solutions can be compared by personnel without engineering background.
  • Configurations can be changed and compared as required.
  • Multiple project versions can be viewed side by side for a detailed comparison. The management of large volumes of data is made easy, as data is updated automatically by FACTON EPC, doing away with time-consuming manual input and copying. In addition, users have the option to change individual Parameters.
