The best time to improve a product’s gross margin is during the design stage. ThreeCore’s consultants have been working with engineering teams for the last ten years supporting design-to-cost initiatives. The pace of competition and the rise of competitors in low cost regions have driven companies to reconsider their traditional approach to developing products.
We bring an outside perspective to a product development team. We help harness ideas spawned from other industries and other regions of the world. Our senior staff members realize that achieving a cost target can mean the difference between a breakout new product and millions of dollars of lost investment. ThreeCore works as a member of a design team identifying lower cost techniques to achieve performance requirements, pushing back when simpler solutions can be pursued and driving early supplier involvement.
