Managing costs is a key ability in modern product development projects. In the ever growing challenge of providing the right value at the right price, having transparency on costs as early as possible is often times the difference between failure and success. Looking at key technologies such as plastic injection molding, die casting or sheet metal stamping, mold and tool costs are the single most determining cost factor for the part’s end price. With mido tool cost calculation is transformed in an easy to do task. The idea of a visually supported rule based mold and tool configuration in combination with automatic cost driver recognition on 3D-CAD models, enables even non experienced users to complete meaningful calculations in little time.
