MTI Systems, Inc. announced today the release of “Beyond the Abacus," an article for manufacturing suppliers and OEMs (original equipment manufacturers.)

This article talks about how cost estimating software can save and make more money for any business focused on manufacturing or assembling parts. Written by journalist Kelly C.

The “Beyond the abacus” article is designed to help both manufacturing suppliers and OEMs. It discusses what manufacturing businesses should consider when choosing the type of cost estimating method that is right for their business and manufacturing environment.

For example, the article shares how manufacturers are faced with the critical step of winning the bidding war, as well as the risk of the losing the profit margin. It further discusses separating fact from fiction when understanding what cost estimating software technology is, and what it is not.
