Technical preliminary costing of individual parts and assemblies

Determine the optimum variant and most cost-effective production method

Technische VorkalkulationWith HSkalk/TK, you can optimize your preliminary costing and calculate the cost price of all production parts up to the complete assembly quickly, efficiently and with a high degree of automation, including technology- and country-specific as well as economical variants. Depending on quantities and call-off quantities, you can use HSkalk/TK to determine unit costs, allocate set-up costs or report these separately. Quantity-dependent special costs are taken into account. Using the machine parameters stored in the HSi technology basis, you can calculate and compare unit costs and setup costs for each work center in the preliminary cost estimate. The optimal variant is shown and graphically displayed.

Specified times adapted to your machine park

With HSkalk/TK you can calculate cost elements such as the technological sequence, material costs, purchased part costs and special direct costs in one view. Scale price, technology and location comparisons support you in making decisions for optimum production and logistics. Basis for a reliable preliminary calculation are the calculated target times with the HSi technology basis adapted to your machine park.

Determine the most cost-effective location

In addition to comparing technological variants, location comparisons can also be made. Different cost rates and productivity factors, including special costs and quantities, provide reliable comparative values. Costs can also be determined and prices formed over several years. Factors such as productivity increase and material cost development can be taken into account.

That's what our customers say:

Brückner Maschinenbau GmbH & Co. KG, Siegsdorf

What is required for the exact calculation of production services? How do the different cost elements break down? What are the decisive cost types and where are the savings potentials? These questions were asked by the purchasing employees at Brückner Maschinenbau. In order to achieve suitable calculation and planning reliability, the company uses the calculation system HSkalk/ TK. It is used for calculating parts and assemblies, allowing for technology /country-specific and economic variants. more

Hötten Industrie & Services, Dorsten

To meet the increasing demands of production, one needs high precision, quality and cost optimisation. However, it is first necessary to become familiar with the process for executing such a task. This requires reliable figures, in order to make potential customers an attractive offer. For this reason, Hötten lndustrie & Services relies on an innovative quotation calculation method with reliable target times. With the adaptive calculation and planning tools from HSi the costing employees and production planners of the custom machine manufacturer and toll manufacturer can generate reliable quotations and exact production plans in a short time.more
