Harness Model-Based Cost Engineering™
and Predictive Analytics
As the car continues its transition from a hardware-driven machine to a software-driven electronics device, the automotive industry’s competitive rules are being rewritten. The amount of software installed in cars is rising and is only going to become more prevalent, and soon it is very likely to contribute 50% of the vehicles’ total costs. With this increased cost comes increased scrutiny and there are currently limited methods to provide this.
Robust decision support for software procurement
PRICE Cost Analytics™ is used by automotive manufacturers and their suppliers to help them understand the cost impacts of their ever-increasing software requirements. The skills and expertise established for hardware procurement, when combined with tools and processes provided by PRICE Cost Analytics™, establishes a proven framework to support software cost engineering. This, in turn, helps drive cost out of the software procurement cycle.
