FACTON EPC in machine and plant engineering industry

Enterprise-wide product cost management starting from the very first unit

Efficient product cost management – with the aim of reducing product costs – is a key success factor in mechanical engineering. FACTON EPC creates clear, robust and comprehensible calculations that help enterprises win and retain new business.

Mechanical engineering and plant construction companies are all too familiar with the challenge of manufacturing starting from the very first unit. In order to generate cost advantages in spite of the challenges created by small batch production, the industry is focusing on the trend of modularization: Functional components that can be assembled over and over again to meet new customer or country-specific design requirements make it possible to produce series with higher repetition rates while cutting process costs. Further advantages include higher purchasing volumes, lower purchase prices, reduced one-time costs and a higher percentage of identical parts. FACTON EPC helps businesses add value in a cost-effective way while promoting a modern understanding of costs.
