The latest inventive Enterprise Resource Management (ERP) systems are found in the cloud, and digitally transform your shop floor to achieve cost and production efficiencies, as well as meet sustainability goals.  

Updated Cost and Sustainability Insights for Fabrication, Casting and Forging 

Manufacturing simulation software provider aPriori (Concord, MA) announced new cost and sustainability guidance for bar and tube and sand casting manufacturing processes. aPriori has supported precise should costing for bar and tube sand casting for years. By adding analysis for carbon equivalent emissions, users can now run trade-offs for different designs by examining cost and carbon simultaneously.  

This expands aPriori’s comprehensive support for metal fabrication, casting and forging, machining, and other production methods. aPriori simulates manufacturing processes and deterministic routings to optimize production based on cost, sustainability and manufacturability requirements. And to increase efficiency, aPriori enables users to explore production alternatives down to the machine level.  

Manufacturers use aPriori’s automated manufacturing insights to eliminate product costs, improve productivity, and reduce their products’ carbon footprint. This includes examining “what-if” scenarios to identify how changes in design, materials, and production can impact cost and sustainability in real time. With aPriori, customers achieve a ~600% ROI within three years and payback within six months of adopting our software platform.
