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.

Cons

  • NPI - quotation
Ricardo W.N. Denigres Fº MSc.PhD. profile photo
  • It is too much of a system for the basic needs of the application it is used for. Siemens spec'd and recommended the solution.
  • The system is not very flexible or customizable. It has several limitations that cannot be modified.
  • It is overly complex and difficult for users to understand. It lacks common sense UI functions that do not need a manual to figure out.

Because of our current customer needs, we will most likely maintain use of Siemens PLM products for some time. Aside from the initial software cost, we pay for yearly maintenance. Maintaining our yearly maintenance licensing with Siemens, we receive access to all of the latest software releases, as well as premier technical support

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.

We also evaluated SolidWorks for our CAD needs. SolidWorks is an excellent CAD package. However, Siemens' Teamcenter software offered us an -out-of-the-box solution for managing all of our files

It's a very robust and mature tool. The only thing that would make it better is the have a version embrace the cloud, which I'm sure is underway, but it's complicated, so it will take more time. But when it's done, look out. It will be near-perfect!
