Reduce PCB Costs with PCBA Automated Cost Modeling Web Seminar
Wednesday April 12. 2017

Are you getting the best price on your PCB Assemblies? Most companies today outsource PCB  manufacturing. Ensuring that you get the best price is difficult without maintaining relationships with multiple vendors, which is expensive and time consuming.  aPriori has introduced a product to make it possible to model the cost of the PCB Assembly, giving you a baseline of what the PCBA Should Cost, as a negociating point with your PCBA partner.  Creating a “Should Cost” has proven to enable companies to reduce cost by 5% or more across multiple assembly types.

You Will Learn

  • The Benefits of creating a PCBA Should Cost Model
  • How PCBA Automated Cost Modeling is accomplished
  • Live Demonstration of the PCBA Costing Module


Who Should attend

  • Manufacturing Management
  • Engineering Management
  • PCB Design Management
  • Procurement and Contracts Managers
  • Cost Engineering


apriori Overview

aPriori is a software company founded in 2003 and located in Concord, Massachusetts. aPriori’s product cost management software and expert consulting services generate hard-dollar product cost savings for discrete manufacturing and product innovation companies. Using aPriori’s real-time product cost assessments, employees in engineering, sourcing and manufacturing make more-informed decisions that drive costs out of products pre- and post-production. With aPriori, manufacturers launch products at cost targets, maximize savings in re-work projects and avoid overpaying for sourced parts.


aPriori enables its customers to analyze cost quickly and accurately in real-time, at the lowest level of product detail based on:

  • What’s being manufactured? — aPriori can create highly detailed part and product cost assessments in real-time
  • How it’s being manufactured? — aPriori has deep domain expertise in the manufacturing processes, sequencing and cost drivers that impact product costs
  • Where it’s being manufactured? — aPriori closely tracks cost of labor, overhead and goods in over sixty different geographical locations around the world, and provides this data as part of its Virtual Production Environments (VPEs) that are delivered to customers as part of the base product.
