MCG mind for metal is a 60-year veteran of the metallic component manufacturing industry with a laser-focus on ethics and sustainability. The machining, fabricating and assembly company fuses their cutting-edge technologies, a robust engineering department and forward-thinking research and development processes, all dedicated to making waves in the automotive, solar, laser and tooling markets. However, when traditional cost estimating practices on archaic spreadsheets consumed vast amounts of financial and human resources, MCG knew it was time for a change.
MCG Sales and Marketing Director Pedro Sousa, explains “…What we used for cost estimating was the typical spreadsheet for every kind of process. So if, for example, you had a part with five processes, we would use five different spreadsheets. This dispersion, over thousands of spreadsheets, was time consuming and error prone. With Costimator we are seeing a reduction in cost estimating lead time and an increase in accuracy through a more simplified estimating process.”
“We are finding that more and more overseas manufacturers are seeking out cost estimating software to help them improve the quality and timeliness of their cost estimating process.” remarks David LaJoie, VP Sales of MTI Systems. “In fact, our international sales of Costimator have more than tripled in the last 2 years.”
Costimator cost estimating, quoting and process planning software has for the past three decades, served as a platform helping to make cost estimating more effective for part suppliers. Whether estimating machining, fabricating, or assembled parts, it helps manufacturers, like job shops, contract manufacturers, precision machining shops and others quickly and accurately, estimate cycle times and determines the manufacturing cost for parts and assemblies. Today, the software is also being used by many of the world’s largest OEMs in a wide variety of industries including defense, aerospace, medical, heavy equipment, automotive and consumer product.
