PRICE Cost Analytics – TruePlanning is the perfect way to do it! Model Based Engineering (MBE) environments are naturally rich with Engineering data including Computer Aided Design (CAD) drawings with Size, Weight and Power (SWAP) budgets. This data is perfect to drive parametric cost models like TruePlanning. All you need to do is create a ‘glue code’ interface to get that data out of where it currently exists, and into TruePlanning. Fortunately, COTS integration environments, like Phoenix ModelCenter, make this easy to do, where a TruePlanning ‘Plug-in’ has already been developed to provide that interface. MBE in a ModelCenter-like environment ...
As a Hybrid / Monolithic Microware Integrated Circuit (MMIC) designer back in the day, and then later on when I actually had to perform cost estimates for new Hybrids and MMICs, I sure wish I had a tool like TruePlanning Microcircuits at my disposal. This tool makes estimating the cost of both of these types of circuits a breeze. With just a little bit of data I can literally estimate the cost of one of these circuits in minutes! Actually gathering the data is definitely the harder part of the process. For a MMIC, all it really takes is ...
Welcome to PRICE TruePlanning® Microcircuits. Prior to the release of TruePlanning® Microcircuits, you have always been able to model / estimate the cost of electronic hardware at the assembly level down to the circuit card assembly (CCA) Level based on estimated weight and complexity inputs, but now, with TruePlanning® Microcircuits, you can model electronic modules down to the individual chip and component, to provide more detailed, accurate electronic assembly estimates.  TruePlanning® Microcircuits provides full support for estimating hybrid modules as well as monolithic integrated circuits (ICs). IC types include digital and analog circuits of all types, including ASICs and monolithic ...
