Pros: I like the ability to model costs in numerous scenarios. I also like the ease of how some of the CAD integrated features perform operations rather easily. The ability to customize code is another great positive of this software compared to previous ones I've used.

Cons: I think more emphasis should be put on data extraction for reports. There seems to be some limitations as to how to get the information out of the system, and the out of the box reports are not sufficient. Also, in order to get better reporting ability by requiring the purchase of a third party report software (Jasper) does not seem to be an appropriate solution, given its limitations.

Overall: Better predictability on the front end of projects, as well as cost takeouts for existing products.

Pros: The thing that I most like is the velocity and the report. I have been a day with this tool and the velocity is very important to the NPI and the negotiation.

Cons: The thing that I least like is the capital cost and the VPE of Brazil.

Overall: Cost reduction

Pros: We especially like and use the Cost Model Workbench for the ability to create User Guided models which are not available as well as models we can use when 3D files are not available. One business area we have been able to work on is identifying gaps where we could not model costs in the past. Now we can build cost models to do those. This provides extra resources in providing target costs and is useful in supplier discussions. I am continually impressed with all the features aPriori allows and has. The more you know...the more you can do. This is especially true within Cost Model Workbench and User Guided cost models. We are creating more and more capability by leveraging what we know along with the aPriori's ability to let us code or own logic.

Cons: Due to the intense ability to customize things, incorporating updates from aPrioir is a bit of an exercise.
