A major OEM struggling to reduce investment for a new Truck to be released in 2 years A target of -35% Vs investment on tooling from previous model.


Phinecon has provided a full cost comparison between the different source of tooling and has proven that the sourcing of tooling from China was the most competitive solution on a Total Cost of Ownership basis.

Then, Phinecon has compared the different way to buy tooling from BCC China between integrator and direct sourcing from china with the support of Phinecon.
