The platform also offers a separate workspace space dedicated to cost modelling.

Our cost models provide a detailed breakdown of industry average product costs for a given good or service. The cost models focus on product costs, which are those costs that can be traced or assigned to a specific good or service, rather than period costs, which are those that occur ratably and are more difficult to trace to a specific good or service. These models are developed through a combination of third-party sources (such as the US Census of Manufacturers) and analysts’ expertise. The goal is to provide you with a starting point for analyzing the cost structure of a given good or service, with the opportunity to customize those models to better fit your specific circumstances.

You can customize or alter 200+ pre-built cost models to fit your business

  • Add any data series relevant to your supply chain and quickly change the overall weights of each component to see the price impact over time
  • Change the parameters of the cost model including the base frequency, value or date
  • Categorize each individual data series by labor, material, product or custom cost category, to easily see where the bulk of spending will be
