Methods Workshopwillunveil the newly redesigned Quick TruCost costing software at the Texprocess Americastradeshow which is being held at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, US, from 13th – 15th May.
Located inside the Technology Solutions Pavilion at Booth #3941, the provider says it will offer hands-on demonstrations of the innovative software that empowers design, development, sourcing and production teams to quickly and accurately answer questions about a product’s components and construction.
“The demand for early-stage costing is growing across all of our markets,”explained Methods Workshop President John Stern. “As time and margin for error continue to shrink in the apparel and sewn products industry, we reinvested to make Quick TruCost faster and easier to use than ever before. While it has always been popular with our clients, we believe that the sleek new interface, robust platform and other system improvements will expand interest and use of QTC across a wider range of companies and functional departments.”
Methods Workshop will also feature its industry-leading EngineeredTruCost (ETC) production costing and methods optimisation software at Texprocess Americas. Leveraging built-in industry-tailored Methods Time Measurement (MTM) standards, ETC enables engineering and production teams to accurately measure product costs, define operational best practices, and benchmark manufacturing performance against global standards.
