Specialized Cost Estimating Software for Manufacturers:

About Us

Plastic Experts has developed several software packages for injection molding companies that are significantly different from the standard software that most "generic" software houses offer.

Our estimating/quotation package is built as a spreadsheet program that can run in a number of platforms, Lotus, Excel, Quattro Pro, etc. for simplicity, and yet includes all the variables that injection molding companies have to factor in when estimating a project. Our package considers part weight or volume, runner scrap losses, color letdown ratios, primary and secondary labor costs, setup expenses and production quantity variables; all the details that affect real costs.

 A matter of some importance is that our package, in the hands of an estimator with minor training and equipped with the data needed to be entered, can produce a fully documented, accurate quotation in less than 20 minutes, with none of the guesswork typical of cost estimating in the ordinary quotation process.

Our software is also unique in that it takes into consideration multiple secondary operations and the sequence in which they occur, so as to calculate cost of scrapped parts at each interim operation, including all value added items included in earlier operations. To our knowledge this is the only software package which includes this important feature.

Production / Process Monitoring Software

Plastic Experts has developed, with the assistance of actual manufacturing personnel from the injection molding industry, a simple, PC based monitoring system that can track performance of all the process equipment in an entire facility. This system requires only two sets of switch contacts within each machine to be connected to our data gathering devices, which feed process data to a central computer. With this system in place, and proper data entry to the custom data base we create for the Company, it is possible to monitor the real-time performance of every job in production. Reports available can include: Efficiency compared to standard. Downtime by shift, in minutes and incident count. Project Efficiency by Shift, daily, Weekly, or Total Run. Overall performance by shift, daily, weekly, etc. Project, Shift, or full facility Profit and Loss, hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly. Material usage and requirements per project per shift, full facility, hourly, daily, weekly, or project duration. This system can give manufacturing personnel the tools they need to plan for production improvements, identify process or scheduling problems, and measurably improve the bottom line, all at a relatively low cost per machine.
