The FACTON EPC Design Costing solution

    helps you keep an eye on your target costs right from the start.


    FACTON EPC Design Costing uncovers costs when they arise – as early as the development phase. Design costing makes it possible to identify cost drivers early on while taking set cost targets into account and also enables rapid comparison of possible design alternatives.


    Direct feedback on your costs with FACTON EPC Design Costing

    FACTON EPC Design Costing shows you directly what impact design and production-related decisions such as materials or production sites have on costs. Once a target cost specification is set in the system, you can quickly uncover savings potential and easily evaluate alternatives.

    Simple costing methods minimize effort

    Costing effort is kept to a minimum since all of the relevant data is entered into a standardized system. Consolidating multiple calculations, e.g. in Excel, is a thing of the past. This not only saves time; it also lowers vulnerability to errors. FACTON EPC Design Costing does not use complex cost accounting, thereby enabling developers and designers to create cost estimates and/or rough calculations. This is sufficient in order to create cost transparency and identify major deviations in target setting. The calculation structure is built on the basis of the engineering BOM.

    You can find an overview of the individual FACTON EPC application cases in the design costing process under Functionalities.
