Expert Assortment Analysis – Reduce total cost of ownership

Fewer different fasteners in one product amount to reduced costs. Rationalizing fasteners and streamlining the bill of materials (BOM) therefore results in high cost saving potential.

Only 15% of the total cost of using a fastener originates from the fastener itself. The other 85% comes from procurement, logistics, assembly preparation and other activities. This fact makes the rationalization of c-parts crucial for your product's total cost of ownership.
