aPriori Product Cost Management

On the fly costing is one of the good things aPriori has. Once the engineer does the design, he can check the cost immediately. So the cost avoidance part is very good. An engineer can optimize the design to cost. This helps to avoid engineering wasting time and supplier settlements will happen on time. The negotiations also will be very much fact based & supplier agreement happens faster.

I believe it is well-suited for any size company. It is very helpful when you have multiple users in your company and need to access the system from an off-site location. If you have sales reps or managers that are traveling and need to review information, it is easy for them to access.

Cons

  • Branch into more process groups for cost modeling capability.
  • Make system updates easier to integrate.
  • Revise the material libraries to be globally centric instead of regional centric. This is for an update simplification perspective of data.

  • When placing orders on hold due to over the credit limit, it takes into consideration all future orders even if they are years in the future.
  • You aren't able to view inventory status as easy when entering an order.
  • You do not get a pop-up notification when entering an order that the account is past due, over the limit, etc.
  • It leaves $0 invoices open on the account until they are manually applied.

Usability

aPriori Product Cost Management8.5
Based on 3 answers
I'm fairly happy with the product. My company appreciates the ability to customize the software, as well as manage our own data points for costs, machines, and materials. The coding aspect is not too difficult as well, though there are some issues with the availability of some information that could be improved.

Implementation

aPriori Product Cost Management8.2
Based on 3 answers
The company was great to work with for implementation, and the on site training and support of our integration was very helpful in coming up to speed on usability, as well as integrating the processes into our specific supply base. There were many times when we had on site resources at our disposal to overcome issues as well.

Alternatives Considered

It was not my decision to have aPriori in our company, but I do agree with this decision because the last software used was less precise than aPriori in its reports.
