Run an ROI Calculator to Determine Feasibility of Automated Programmer Purchase
Request ROI Analysis
Provide us with a device list, with approximate programming data upload, and the number of devices needed per month, and we’ll provide you with an ROI Analysis.
In this real-world example, we’ll break down the numbers to bring device programming in-house:
|COST PER DEVICE ANALYSIS|
|Shift Hours Per Day||16*|
|Machine Hours Required (Based on devices, programming times, etc. Contact us for this number)||2,846*|
|Machine Utilization Rate (85% is a pretty good average)||85%|
|Total Burdened Hours Required||3,436|
|Burdened Labor Rate per hour||$15.00|
|Cost per Device (Outsourced)||$0.25|
|Total Solution Price (APS + Peripherals)||$225,000*|
|Total Number of Devices per year||2,400,000|
|Total cost per year||$96,540|
|Estimated Consumable Cost Per Device||$0.015|
|Cost per programmed device = Equipment, Overhead + Consumables||$0.055|
|SYSTEM PAYBACK CALCULATION|
|Device per day (260 days/yr)||9,231|
|Savings per device||$0.195|
|Savings per day||$1,797.92|
|Days to payback||125.1|
*BPM can help you with some of these numbers. If you provide us with a device list, how much data is to be programmed, and how many devices you need per month, we can give you a minimum configuration of a recommended system. Changeover hours are determined by how many changeovers per shift.
Payback in About 4 Months
In the example above, it would take a little under 18 weeks (not years) to make device programming in-house a profit center! Once paid for, it’s almost all profit. Many customers use these systems for 10+ years and achieve 5-10X ROI.
