    Fast and standardized costing with FACTON EPC

    With FACTON EPC, manufacturing companies can perform their costing tasks quickly and in a consistent manner. The software includes a range of standard models and methods for all general costing tasks. These calculations are performed quickly and with the necessary accuracy, using the standardized costing tool. FACTON EPC thus serves as the centralized information and data pool for the analysis of the commercial viability of a product or project. 

    Opportunities and risks identifying based on detailed analyses and simulations

    FACTON EPC offers a range of functions for the transparent and accurate analysis of costing data, which forms the basis for a thorough evaluation of opportunities and risks. Such analyses can be performed across the entire lifecycle of a product, securing the success of the enterprise well into the future. 

    Cost structures and the sensitivity of certain cost items can be analysed in a most flexible manner by entering relevant parameters. In addition, the software allows for simulation runs with a large range of parameters. In FACTON EPC, analyses and simulations can be set up to cover any chosen time period. FACTON EPC always applies the input parameters as valid for that period, so that analyses and simulations are accurate for any chosen year.

    Optimizing costs and processes with FACTON EPC

    With FACTON EPC, companies can quickly identify potentials for cost optimization. Apart from optimizing processes at product level, the software comes with a number of special functions that allow for targeted portfolio management.

    With FACTON EPC, costs can be optimized quickly and in a most efficient manner – for example, with the integrated variant management tools that allow for the re-evaluation of alternative solutions based on previously calculated costings. Users are thus in a position to compare new options with previous ones. Optimized options and existing costings are documented by the EPC application, and saved in the form of different versions that can then be analyzed further with regard to their actual impact on costs.

    Apart from optimization at product level, FACTON EPC offers a range of functions for targeted portfolio management.
