The Costimator Cost Estimating Software is designed for both job shops and OEM’s that need to provide faster and more accurate cost estimates. Costimator enables manufacturers, including fabricating and machining shops, to quickly and accurately estimate cycle times and costs based on your (or your suppliers) equipment and shop rates.

Whether you are a job shop or contract manufacturer needing to respond quickly and accurately to a request for quotation (RFQ) or an OEM needing to understand what your product costs are throughout the product development life-cycle, Costimator can help.


Costimator provides OEMs with the knowledge they need to identify and understand the cost drivers in the parts they design, manufacture and procure. By breaking down and quantifying the true costs of manufactured parts and assemblies, Costimator allows companies to implement uniform and predictable costing strategies while reducing cost throughout the product lifecycle.
