AN INFORMATION FRAMEWORK FOR ESTIMATION OF INSTRUMENT TRANSFORMER COST
Managing the cost of production from the early beginning till the end of production has crucial role in competitive ability on the today’s market. Hence the challenge is to automatically estimate the cost of production. An eBOM is extended by the elements necessary for mapping with the mBOM. Those elements are Activity_id, Resource_id and Quantity_id. Extended bill of material and manufacturing bill of material, together with the integration between the BOMs, constitute the information model for estimation of manufacturing cost. A model is realized by utilization of PDM, PM and ERP systems.
