Estimating to Installation Manufacturing
Business Platform

The challenge – A Typical Day In The Life Of Our Prime6400 Customers

Our Prime6400 customers build unique products designed to their customer specifications, and each product requires an exclusive set of labor and materials – and schedules also need to include machines and equipment. Estimates and quotations are mandatory to win business, and in some cases estimates can take advantage from previous jobs that had similar characteristics. The goal is to constantly move away from estimate “guessing”, and towards to accurate costing, and to significantly reduce the business risk of poor projecting (the end customer can become loyal and the Pirme6400 customer can consistently maximize profit). Products are complex with long lead times, typically many months. The end customer is often heavily involved throughout the entire design and manufacturing process (change orders) – and changes are a way of life. Materials are purchased not for inventory but for a specific project. All actual costs are allocated to a project and tracked against the original estimate. Once complete, the product is typically installed at the customer’s site. In most cases, aftermarket services can continue throughout the life of the product.
