Reduce product and service cost through Cleansheet analysis

Cleansheet analyzes a product’s cost structure to help manufacturers optimize design and capture savings.
In order to identify cost-reduction opportunities, manufacturers need to understand the drivers of each product’s manufacturing and delivery costs. Cleansheet solves this problem by providing a database of input costs, analytical tools that identify cost-savings initiatives, and expert analysis of competitors. By examining every aspect of the production process, Cleansheet uncovers exactly which procurement or design changes will produce the greatest savings.
