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.

CollabNet TeamForge is appropriate for most applications development. In any industry especially suited for high demand software delivery environments.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Much more customizeable with greater potential for future expansion.
Tony Molica profile photo
CollabNet TeamForge is superior to Mercury mainly because it has a subversion change management tool integrated with the product. CollabNet TeamForge offers more complexity but with more flexibility for managing and tracking projects. I think
CollabNet TeamForge is more comprehensive than either Mercury and JIRA. They're all user friendly tools with short learning curves but CollabNet TeamForge is most efficient in my experience.
JIRA was recently adopted for particular applications and is currently being evaluated by various technology teams.
