Benchmark product costs, factory efficiency and competitiveness

Predict costs of new styles prior to or during price negotiation

Engineer the cost/value relationship in a product to meet with a viable price point

Analyse production methods to improve productivity

Standardise production methods to improve product quality & reliability

Improve production methods and productivity with proof of concept
