After training is complete, being certified helps make you more valuable to your company, with detailed knowledge how to:

  1. Predict internal cost against pricing submitted by contract electronics suppliers for your programs
  2. Identify EMS manufacturer inefficiencies in your programs
  3. Identify internal supplier operating costs, where your suppliers hide profits and double-dips with excessive fees and markups, enabling you to develop supplier financial metrics to better manage supplier relationships
  4. Determine what your unit total landed best strike price (cost) should be, including fully burdened labor rates for direct labor and indirect labor, including design and manufacturing engineering costs.
  5. Leverage outputs from your manufacturing cost model so you know where, and how, to drive down your product unit cost to get closer to actual EMS manufacturer internal costs
  6. Better positioning for your company during contract negotiations (or re-negotiations), with defensible cost reductions to reduce your manufacturing spend
  7. Tracking and achieving ROI for your programs and where to apply supplier scorecards in your contract manufacturing supply chain.
