1. Software helps to link all the platform available i.e ERP, CFD, SAP system 2. Mode FRONTIER is another that helps to do costing for various parameters thereby helping in achieving the best optimize cost for the required parameter 3. Target Costing/ Value Tracking report helps in the New Product Development 4. Cost Insight design/reporting is another positivity for aPriori which helps to visualize for the business meeting and cost outlier analysis etc..

Nachteile:

Required good server for the Speed in the costing the parts but aPriori has solution where they are bringing in the Web-Based Costing in near future

It is a One Size Fits All tool for Product Lifecycle

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: A great experience working in aPriori and dealing with aPriori support team who is always ready to help and support on all issues. Personally like their professional approach to resolve the issues as soon as possible.

Vorteile:

aPriori gives a wide range of options in costing and analysis that is most suitable for all stakeholders during a product development or product improvement lifecycle. It is a great tool in hands of engineers to evaluate early impacts of Cost and also helps understands manufacturing limitations and design rule violations through Design to Cost feedback. Also a great tool to understand alternate design or alternate manufacturing evaluations. It is an essential tool in hands of cost engineers to understand and quickly simulate different scenarios of cost in various regions and various parameters. A great tool for Purchasing to understand the details of cost breakdown and negotiate with suppliers on arguable parameters. aPriori also provides Business Intelligence tool with Cost Insight Reporting that is very much helpful for Project Managers to keep track of the project status and cost targets. Overall, aPriori would be a great tool for any industry that is looking to excel in industry with right evaluated approach and good understanding of Cost of the product. Thank You.

Nachteile:

There are certain process group not available in aPriori to cost such as Hydraulic Hoses, Black Box, Valves, Assembly/welding tooling etc. These processes are highly used in industries and would be essential to have in aPriori expertise.

aPriori comments

3,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: It's a good upfront design for cost tool. In addition, it's a reasonable should cost & supplier quote analysis tool. The challenge from a team member buy-in standpoint is that we have a few big wins and more cases where we didn't get useful results from aPriori analysis. From an overall perspective, the big wins probably justify the cases where it didn't work out so well, but team members who spent a lot of time & effort without good results get a negative view of aPriori and its capabilities.

Vorteile:

Upfront ability to determine costing during the design phase. Objective & detailed analysis of component cost, including optimal processing.

Nachteile:

In some cases the recommendations from aPriori of diametrically opposed to what we find in our supply base. For example, recommending ductile cast iron over gray cast iron on a pound for pound cost base. We don't have any evidence from our supply base that this is true. This case discouraged use of aPriori for several key team members.

Expert product management tool with focus Engineering

4,0 vor 5 Monaten

Kommentare: precise material cost simulations based on 3D CAD models, manufacturing and assembly simulations of more complex assemblies need higher amount of manual adjustment, useful out-of-the-box reports and interfaces with MS Office 365, PLM and ERP

Vorteile:

professional expert software with interesting and useful reverse/cost engineering features and interfaces for diverse standard ERP and PLM software, knowledge database and training documentation

Nachteile:

maintenance, training and customization needs higher amount of (external) expertise and resources

3D model engine makes cost analysis faster

4,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Fast and easy to use, even for design engineers or buyers. When a cost-structure is well established, it can provide the estimation for all simple mechanical components. The bulk-costing is powerful if well configured.

Vorteile:

The 3D model engine can load Step parts/assemblies in seconds, recognizing the manufacturing features such as bending/drilling/machining . This makes the cost estimation automatic and much easier, comparing to other similar software on the market.

Nachteile:

The annual subscription price is not easy to digest, even for large companies. We had to prepare a good business case to get the approval of purchase.

aPriori to add to and simulate your digital thread.

5,0 vor 4 Monaten

Vorteile:

The detail and precision of the aPriori digital model is amazing, how you can create a digital twin of a factory floor. And then leverage that with users around the world.

Nachteile:

This isn’t about aPriori, but one of the most difficult things I’ve noticed about implementing aPriori is the change needed in the business to be able to really get maximum value from the calculations.

aPriori's ability to be calibrated and customized to our specific uses allows us to fill in the gaps

4,0 vor 7 Jahren

Vorteile:

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. 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. I am continually impressed with all the features aPriori allows and has. The more you know...the more you can do. This is especially true within Cost Model Workbench and User Guided cost models. We are creating more and more capability by leveraging what we know along with the aPriori's ability to let us code or own logic.

Nachteile:

Due to the intense ability to customize things, incorporating updates from aPrioir is a bit of an exercise.

Costing tool with advanced features and reliable cost models...!!

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: Overall experience with apriori is very good, its very advanced costing tool and every-time whenever i go through their helping doc. i always learned new way of seeing the things.I strongly recommend aPriori to all manufacturers specially OEM's in order to have excellent understanding related with Major cost drivers in product costing and management

Vorteile:

aPriori costing tool gives us leverage to do the costing with CAD model itself. Well-designed , easy to use interface and updated data for different regions help us to validate all cost drivers and refined our should cost as per the actual practice. Cost models are built with reliable logics and can be used as explanation for negotiation with suppliers.

Nachteile:

Some of the cost models like milling,electroplating etc need to be reviewed and refined with updated logics and parameters. Super finishing processes like lapping, honing etc. need to be added.

aPriori - Quoting friend

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Vorteile:

I am a user of aPriori so I cannot speak much on the implementation of this product but I can speak on how this has help me in my everyday job as a quoter for Plastic Injection Molding. Using this software, I can analyze the geometry of a part and in minutes have an estimate on how much a mold may cost. There are many manual variables you can adjust to produce a more accurate representation of your overall cost, quick response time, and many reports that can be generated after the fact. This saves me days working on certain quotes and gives me more confidence in my work and quote being as accurate as possible.

Nachteile:

No real big cons, in my opinion. The split screen UI is goofy at time but can get adjusted to your own liking. Would be nice to see some additional viewing features for the 3D part being displayed, section view specifically.

Kommentare: The tool has been incredibly beneficial to our organization to make better design and sourcing decisions.

Vorteile:

It is relatively easy and quick to use to get a rough price for a component without having to go through the time consuming quoting process.

Nachteile:

It struggles with parts containing tight GD&T. And when upgrading to a new version, it is a challenge to get up and running quickly.
