Cost Engineering and Value Management. This is what we at STEFAN Consulting do for a living.
We find, optimize and implement the key potentials for your operational success.


Cost Engineering & Value Management

Cost Engineering & Value Management

80% of production cost are defined before SOP. Through Cost Engineering and Value Management more and more companies reduce their material and process cost  significantly, before the first part is even produced.
This is done by initiatives like Design2Cost, Function Cost Analysis as well as Best Practice Should Cost Analysis. 

These and many other methods, invented in the last decades mostly in the automotive sector, we at STEFAN Consulting are using at our customer.
No matter if the project is in Automotive, Aerospace, Machine Construction or if you produce 1 or a million parts per year.
Cost Engineering and Value Management will help you, to reduce your cost. Sustainable.
