It is a very good tool for the business in the area of product cost management

What do you like best?

I like the accuracy of the process cost details available in apriori. The in depth data in calculating the costs in all the cost models are excellent. This software helps to create impact faster which is the requirement in the current competitive business scenario.

What do you dislike?

Cost modelling is bit requires more training to start. In this challenging world, impact or cost savings is the important need of the hour. Creating customized cost model is the need of the hour. Apriori should come up with the solution so that we can create the cost models on the fly.

I will recommend apriori to all OEMs who having complex product lines. Software will help to create a good insight on the product cost & manages the cost excellently.

Product Cost Management for Enterprise

What do you like best?

The aPriori cost modeling application allows users of all experience the ability to generate cost estimates. The manufacturing processes available are robust and continuing to increase as upgrades are released (every 6 months). The product allows for complete customization to emulate any environment. Data can be aggregated or segregated specific to user security requirements. Tool can be deployed across single or multiple regions (global) with accurate handling of currency. Support team is quick to respond supporting users to system admins in consistent manner.

What do you dislike?

Currently the product is a thick client desktop application requiring high powered computer hardware. aPriori is currently developing a web-based version of the application that will eliminate this barrier.

Recommendations to others considering the product

aPriori is an organizational commitment. In most cases, it is not a tool that you will experiment or lightly manage. It it perfect, no. There are specific manufacturing capabilities that do not exist however these are more unique processes rather than industry wide gaps. aPriori is founded upon utilization of CAD to drive the costing algorithms. Capability to develop cost without CAD does exist but requires users to have stronger knowledge of manufacturing process.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The primary problem was to implement an enterprise cost modeling solution. Ability to drive consistency in application while having global capability to share information across a database application. aPriori has been applied to new product introduction and competitive cost analysis domains.

aPriori as a cost tool

What do you like best?

That it takes in to account various factors that probably you could miss by accident, such as packing, painting, engraving, labeling, and it's helpful that the software let's you change the costs of them.

What do you dislike?

That some changes that you make in the GCD's doesn't affect the whole price as they should, such as the Roughness. Also, sometimes it's a little difficult to use the wright material for the cost models because not all the processes have all the materials in their material libraries.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would really recommend the software, but I would also say that this probably isn't for all the companies, before buying it, they should make an study of it and check it's capabilities.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The overcosting of the raw material for some parts, which sometimes gives us a quick win in some parts. Also sometimes it gives a different approach for the manufacturing of some products, which sometimes it's helpful to review.

Customizable, helps fill in the gaps

What do you like best?

aPriori's ability to be calibrated and customized to our specific uses allows us to fill in the gaps. We especially like and use the Cost Model Workbench for the ability to create User Guided models which are not available as well as models we can use when 3D files are not available.

What do you dislike?

aPriori gives a lot of data as outputs. Would like to see a cleaner interface and one where we can get to the fields I want to see easier. Customizing reports more simply would be a benefit as well.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

One business area we have been able to work on is identifying gaps where we could not model costs in the past. Now we can build cost models to do those. This provides extra resources in providing target costs and is useful in supplier discussions.

Most Efficient Product cost estimation tool of recent times!!

What do you like best?

The detailed data base of different manufacturing processes is the biggest strength of this tool. The cost models are neatly built relying on this huge data. Customization of cost model is simple and the user is able to generate several insight over a cost model with out much effort. When we go for discussion on the table with the suppliers, the clarity in the cost model serves as a key for a successful negotiation.

What do you dislike?

The cost building logic is not in depth or vague in few areas. Still there is huge scope for improvement.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Apriori helps us in resourcing activities. It helps us in various cost down projects by enabling us to visualize the cost in different perspectives at a time.
