Part Cost Estimating Program (Revision A) Price: $675 US
This is my pride and joy and could pay for itself the first time you use it. It has been used and tweaked for over 14 years and is the most accurate cost estimating program available. Every imaginable factor that effects the cost and selling price of a molded part has been included. And yet it is extremely fast and easy to use.
Detailed instructions with tips and comments are included with the program. It can also be customized to reflect your companies needs and image.
To begin, you need to enter your press sizes, press rates, labor rates and assorted margins into the program. You only need to do this once, but annual updates are recommended. The estimator then fills out just one page of questions - many of which have drop-down menus and automatic calculations. Quotations should only take 10-20 minutes.
That time can be cut in half by entering your frequently used raw material and packaging costs into the data base sheet. These costs then become automatically entered into the Estimators worksheet. Again, you only need to enter this information once, but annual updates are recommended.
The program automatically generates a detailed Cost Of Goods Sold, Price Breakdown, Profit Breakdown, Bar Chart cost analysis and Formal Quotation to submit to your customers.
