Windchill LCC

formerly Relex Life Cycle Cost

Analyze the lifetime cost of a product or system

Windchill LCC combines industry-standard or user-defined cost and work breakdown structures with a flexible equation editor to provide complete control over your life cycle cost analyses. Consider alternative designs, incorporate a range of variable types, and calculate sensitivity. By factoring in frequently overlooked items, such as cost of part failures and repairs , Windchill LCC can meet your cost analysis needs during any phase of product life, including design, manufacturing, maintenance, and warranty.

Cost Breakdown Graph Cost Breakdown Structure. Windchill LCC provides an intuitive interface to create a Cost Breakdown Structure (CBS) that meets your company or industry needs. Account for many different types of costs, including design, production, warranty, repair, and disposal´╗┐´╗┐. Use the flexible, built-in equation editor to define cost equations and variables to calculate very detailed repair costs up through high-level system cost.

Comprehensive Analysis. Windchill LCC supports parametric, analogy, bottom-up, and direct cost analysis calculations. Results include total lifetime cost, sensitivity calculations and Net Present Value (NPV). Windchill LCC is most powerful when leveraged with other reliability analysis tools. Link failure and repair rates from Windchill Prediction, or availability and downtime costs from Windchill RBD, to dynamically include these often overlooked costs.

Standard and Custom Reports Professional Outputs. Windchill LCC is supplied with a range of industry standard reports and graphs. Easy-to-use Report and Graph Wizards provide complete user customization of outputs to fit your specific needs, without the need for IT experts. Once complete, reports and graphs can be printed or saved directly to Microsoft Word or Excel, and Adobe PDF.
