Cost reduction of a high voltage device

For a product family, I should verify the savings potential, independent of my customer’s internal development.

To do this, I analyzed the cost structure for the key components of the high-voltage device. The focus of my work was on the cost drivers, for which I was able to develop several significantly cheaper alternatives. For each of my suggestions, I have estimated the potential savings.

The customer was thus able to focus on the development with the greatest cost reduction.
