The best teams suited to the customer
Itera Cost Optimization Service
At Itera, we offer our serial production experience during the initial stages of a project. Invest at the right time in the right place.
Do you have a team with knowledge of product design at your company? If you don’t have a team trained in this area, it can prevent your company from opting for certain projects for manufacturers.
At Itera, we offer our serial production experience during the initial stages of a project. This allows our customers to save on costs in subsequent phases thanks to the 1-10,000 rule. The cost of each change to a product is multiplied by 10 every time it moves to a new project phase. Our product know-how in mass production environments allows us to anticipate potential errors that may otherwise go undetected until release phases, thus saving our customers unnecessary expenses from the moment Itera joins the team.
