Cost Driver Modeling

Without visibility into what contributes to each product`s manufacturing and delivery costs, it is difficult for companies to identify which parts of their procurement process present cost reduction opportunities. 

Cost Driver Modeling solves this problem

Cost Driver Modeling enables procurement andproduct de velopment leaders to analyze a product`s underlying cost structure to identify efficiency opportunities in purchasing,production, delivery, and design.

by providing a database of input costs, a suite of analytical tools that prioritize cost-saving initiatives across the production process, and a team of experts that analyzes competitor products and facilitates supplier negotiation workshops. By analyzing every aspect of the production process, Cost Driver Modeling uncovers exactly which procurement or design changes will result in the greatest savings.

Cost Driver Modeling is a collaborative tool that rapidly determines should-costs for items through an existing library of cost models and custom-model building capabilities. These models are populated by data from curated cost databases, insightsfrom Hay Think`s network of category experts, and inputs from supplier workshops to calculate should-cost for specific items and whole portfolios. Cost Driver Modeling provides a sustainable solution to managing product costs year over year.




Parametric modeling

Bringing cost transparency and analysis to complex portfolios and large supplier bases

What is it?

The Cost Driver Modeling Solution offers a parametric capability which uses a flexible model to calculate savings opportunities for entire categories of items based on a few parameters such as dimensions, materials, or finishing. The parametric capability can also be used to determine costs of indirect spend such as temporary labor or freight load.

This feature supplements the Cost Driver Modeling`s ability to conduct complete pricing teardowns for a couple items at a time.

What impact does it generate?

• Increases visibility of total spend breakdown and enables higher confidence for supplier negotiations, resulting in higher savings

• Allows procurement to analyze entire portfolios of parts quickly for organizations with complex, fragmented categories and multiple suppliers

• Brings a level of ease and depth of analysis to understanding costs for organizations with large portfolios of items
