Cost estimating for benchmarking

Cost estimating for benchmarking | 12 November, 2002

Hello Sirs,

I would really appreciate if somebody could help me to understand how these elements of cost bellow can affect the total cost of an SMT facility. I am studying these numbers for benchmarking purposes.

1) Equipment amortization 2) Maintenance (downtime) 3) Labor (direct and indirect) 4) Waste on assembly process

The question is: What is the percentage cost ( beyond comparison to the total cost) of these elements above?

Thank you very much for the attention!

Recognize that the cost of production changes substantially with factors such as: * Product maturity. * Production volume. * Product complexity. * Quality versus cost functions.

So, in your benchmarking effort, consider baselining your data according to similar factors.

Sammy Shina at UMass Lowell has done a lot of work modeling electronic manufacturing costs.

Hi Dave

Your note here about Sammy, how can I reach him for information on his financial modeling. Could you post his email here or send it to mine.

Ken and Sergiovito,

can you share your findings with me as well? Could you forward to me any interesting info you get? (Or maybe post on the forum ...)

Thank you,
