Dynamic Cost Analytics
Fluctuations in commodity markets have a strong impact on component prices. Adjustments to raw material-dependent purchased parts are made either via a MTZ (= material surcharge), slip clauses or ongoing renegotiations. As our operational experience shows, the pricing of this cost component is often incorrect – price adjustments sometimes differ significantly from real market developments. The consequence of this, according to our experience, are negative price deviations – often in the double-digit percentage range. The large number of raw material indices, MTZ calculation formulas and part numbers result in complexity and processing costs that are hardly manageable.
Due to a new combination of MTZ and other additional factors with the relevant market indices, changes in raw material prices can now be exactly evaluated and stored – for all part numbers, automated and up-to-date. With Dynamic Cost Analytics, you receive the first solution available on the market for an index or market-compliant adjustment of the price situation.
