What to Do if Your Purchasing Practices Are Not Providing Should be Costs

March 22 @ 11:00 am - 11:30 am

Part 2: Should-Be Cost Models Based on Manufacturing Processes


Frequently customers push sales people for fast and accurate quotes for new programs and potential design changes.  Their compressed time windows do not provide adequate time for purchasing to obtain quotes from suppliers.


Join us for exciting insights into how buyers can more easily support new business pursuit as well as design changes. In this 30-minute session, Jeoff Burris of APD will share what some purchasing organizations are doing to provide fast and accurate cost and timing information for both new programs and potential design changes.  Learn the simple tools that enable purchasing to keep sales and customers satisfied while minimizing supplier workload.


Part 1 focuses on using physical part characteristics to estimate should-be costs.

Part 2 will focus on creating manufacturing process models.


Attendees will receive a copy of APD’s white paper “The Road to Should-Be Costs”.
