Costing in 6 quick and easy steps:
- Aggregate existing (itemized or summarized) bills of materials into a “master” bill of material.
- Analyze manufacturer and item groups. eCalc generates a suggested request for quotation, which can be adjusted to meet your requirements.
- Create a custom request for quotation for each supplier in Excel based on the suggested RFQ. Enclosures (Gerber data etc.) can be appended.
- Send the RFQ to the respective contact directly from eCalc, no separate e-mail tool needed.
- Evaluate the different quotations for price, delivery deadline and material surplus— switch between aggregated, subassembly level and component level views. A results overview displays all relevant values concerning quantities, individual materials costs, volumes, delivery deadlines and material surplus.
- Import the suppliers’ quotations, in fully automated or manual mode.

- What is the material surplus (expressed in quantity and cost) resulting from the different packing units and minimum order quantities?
- What is the relationship between individual materials costs and total volume (aggregated and at the subassembly level) with regard to price, delivery deadline and material surplus?
