Cost of Manufacturing & Estimation of Selling Price

Yole Développement is proud to publish the reverse costing report of the Thermal Imaging Camera : FLIR i7 from FLIR Systems.

This model was announced as the smallest, lightest and most affordable thermal imaging cameras on the market. It offer an image quality of 120x120 pixels and a maximum weight of 365 grams.

The camera integrates a Flir ISC0601B micro-bolometer, a germanium infrared optical lens and a main electronic board in a small and compact housing. The system, with accessories is supplied in a rigid transport case.

Based on a complete teardown analysis, the report provides an estimation of the production cost as well as the selling price of the product.

Across the Enterprise, from marketing to purchasing and R&D, product manufacturing cost is a major factor which has to be measured and then optimized. Since 1993, System Plus Consulting’s mission has been to develop and sell the right tools and services to meet these costing requirements.

System Plus Consulting utilizes an engineering approach to cost. Cost models and technology expertise are combined to provide customers with an accurate and objective estimation of manufacturing costs and selling prices.

Headquartered in Nantes, France, System Plus Consulting is specialized in technology and cost analysis of electronic components and systems. During our 20 years in business, we have built and refined detailed cost models as the primary tools for hundreds of analyses. The highly qualified System Plus cost engineers combine broad and deep skills in semiconductor and electronics technologies with years of experience in cost modeling.

We offer:
− Custom reverse costing analyses: technology analysis followed by cost evaluation
− Standard reverse costing reports: regular publications on innovative products (available from our catalogue)
− Costing tools: software tools combining models and data to perform cost analysis

System Plus Consulting analyzes any type of electronic devices and systems, with a special focus on semiconductor technologies. Major fields of technology and cost expertise are:
− Integrated Circuits
− Power Devices and Modules
