Projects

Product Development Cost Tool

– Present

Coordinated teams from 7 different departments to create a Product Development Cost Tool spreadsheet currently used by the Real Estate Department that tracks costs of a print product from the initial kickoff meeting to print. This tool aids product managers and upper management in accept/reject decisions regarding which new projects will benefit the firm the most, and how profitable they are projected to be. The tool takes historical data and a combination of actual and some estimated costs of each department touching the project to produce an estimated cost of the total project.
When tested against actual cost numbers from the accounting department, the tool was within 10% on multiple products and is currently used by the Real Estate Department for its purpose. It will eventually be built out for other product lines to utilize and will impact the business on a larger scale by cutting down on wasteful projects and keeping focus on maximizing profits. The need for this project came from the fact that nothing current had existed to estimate or track these costs. Marketing could produce projected sales numbers based on their research and expertise, but the cost of constructing the product was unknown.
