Parameters used in cost modeling.
|CCM (20k)||“Total unit cost” in CM_20k case|
|CCM (100k)||“Total unit cost” in CM_100k case|
|CAM_method_A||“Total unit cost” in AM method_A case|
|CAM_method_B||“Total unit cost” in AM method_B case|
|O||“Other unit cost” in production, which is a very small amount and volume independent
This is the summation of CM assembly, operator, and materials; the machine cost approaches 0 independent of the batch size; and the “O” value is assumed to be the same for both CM_20k and CM_100k
|TCM (20k)||“Tooling unit cost” (mold design cost breakdown + mold cost) in CM_20k case|
|TCM (100k)||“Tooling unit cost” (mold design cost breakdown + mold cost) in CM_100k case|
|M||“Mold design cost,” which is one time cost per batch, a constant, and volume dependent|
|m||“mold unit cost” in production, which is a constant and volume independent|
