Calculation of Production Cost for quotations and Work planning

To calculate production cost material cost and estimated manufacturing time have to be calculated with a high degree of accuracy. For customer specific harnesses this implies significant effort which is costly and time consuming. Due to appointed time for quotations this can't be done without support of automatic tools.

To estimated manufacturing cost it is necessary to take into account the manufacturing instructions for each single element.
The calculation tool for V5H and MS_Cable uses a patented method to simulate the manufacturing process. Prerequisite is a manufacturing knowledge base which has to be installed once. This knowledge base consists of rules, working plans and resources.

H_CALC is indispensable for quotations. Throughout the life cycle of a harness it helps to detect necessary cost changes due to design changes or cost profiles without any manual action.
