CostVision Integrates its Product Costing Software With PTC Mechanical Design Tools

By DMN Staff Writer
CostVision, an independent vendor of costing software for discrete manufacturing industries, announced that it has established an alliance with PTC, the product development company, as an enterprise software partner (ESP). CostVision has selected PTC and the Pro/ENGINEER mechanical computer-aided design (MCAD) program because it is the industry standard in high-tech, medical and industrial equipment companies.

The integrated CostVision offering will provide PTC software users with a window into product costing during the design phase of the product lifecycle; keeping customers aware of manufacturing costs through each step of the design process. This is achieved by extracting feature parameters and bill of materials data from MCAD models and transferring them into CostVision's product costing software, Cost2Target.
