Cost reduction for high voltage device

Cost reduction for high voltage device

For a product family (regardless of the internal development) the savings potential should be verified.

To do this, I analysed the cost structure for the key components of the high-voltage device. My subsequent work focused on the cost drivers, for which I developed several cheaper alternatives. I estimated the savings potential for each of my suggestions.

I discussed the results of my study with the customer’s developers. This enabled her to focus on the development with the greatest cost reduction.
