As in all industries profit is the motive for the electronics assembly industry. Therefore, understanding assembly cost should be a prime concern. The stakes are indeed great as approximately 10 to 15% of the $1.5 trillion electronics industry is assembly cost. Surprisingly, there does not appear to be a systematic approach to cost estimating in the industry. ProfitPro™ was developed to meet this need. This Excel® based software tool enables real-time analysis and estimates of costing scenarios. Even if you don’t know all of your cost metrics, ProfitPro™ has default metrics and many saved scenarios to help you to understand and improve your profitability.
