GSD Benefits

GSD Benefits (Brand & Retail)

Benchmarking Time and Cost
GSD creates a transparent benchmark based on Standard Time, irrespective of the place of manufacture, thereby providing a known and agreed foundation for cost/price discussions and fact-based negotiation.

Method Benchmarking
GSD also creates a transparent benchmark for Standard Methods, irrespective of the place of manufacture, and again providing a known and agreed method to support price and quality conformance.

Pre Costing
Used at “Feature” level by Costing Technicians, Product Development and Designers alike, the simple, “drag & drop” interface quickly and efficiently establishes a cost indication for prototype styles and products.

Product Costing
Benchmark times are used as a business standard for final costing or as the basis for method/ time/price discussion, leading to fact-based agreement - or alternatively “quantifiable disagreement”, which leads to objective resolution.

GSD improves productivity in the supply chain by supporting and improving Production Planning, Line Balancing, Incentive Schemes - and by promoting Continuous Improvement programmes.

Design and costs may be engineered and fine-tuned to give the best design/ value/price balance – even by personnel with little or no manufacturing experience or technical knowledge.
