CAT², in partnership with Cortell, offers an activity-based system that traces products step-by-step thru the production process, enabling plant and financial managers to understand the cost of every activity, process step and all the components of a product’s cost.
Cortell’s Valumax costing solution has a tight interface with CAT²’s production control system, providing a financial perspective on process yields and all production losses and helping production and finance managers “talk the same language” while working together creating continuous improvement to increase productivity and profitability.
A full supply chain cost analysis can also be done to provide insight into logistics costs and to measure profitability by customer and by products enabling better pricing and competitiveness
The system is auditable with complete traceability of costs from product back to all inputs.
