Assessing Product

Introducing DA’s Signature Cost Modelling

Turning an idea into a successful product requires more than just creativity and innovation; it demands a thorough understanding of its commercial viability. Many of our clients, whether Corporate, SME or start-ups, often find themselves in a dilemma: they have a groundbreaking idea, but they lack the means to assess its feasibility in the market. Our answer: DA’s Signature Cost Modelling.

At its core, DA Signature Cost Modelling is a comprehensive process designed to evaluate the commercial viability of your product idea. It goes beyond speculation by providing tangible insights into manufacturing costs, potential returns, and overall feasibility.


So, what makes this process invaluable?

The DA Signature Cost Modelling process is structured to deliver actionable insights that can guide your product development journey.

  1. Assessment of Manufacturing Costs: Understanding the manufacturing costs involved is crucial to determining product viability. This process provides a detailed breakdown of CapEx expenses, including tooling costs, unit costs, assembly time, and the cost of off-the-shelf hardware. By having a clear picture of these expenses, you can make informed decisions about pricing and profit margins
  2. Evaluation of Potential Returns: Apart from understanding the costs, it’s essential to gauge the potential returns your product can generate. The DA Signature Cost Modelling process helps you forecast the revenue streams and estimate the profitability of your idea. This insight is instrumental in determining whether your product can yield sustainable returns in the market
  3. No-Fluff Approach: Unlike generic assessments that may lack specificity, DA Signature Cost Modelling offers a no-fluff approach. You receive a comprehensive spreadsheet containing all the necessary information to make informed decisions. This means you get straight to the point, saving time and resources in the process

Unlocking Your Product’s Potential

  1. Mitigating Risks: Launching a new product involves inherent risks, but thorough planning can mitigate them. By assessing the commercial viability upfront, you reduce the risk of investing time and resources into a venture with uncertain outcomes
  2. Optimizing Resource Allocation: Resources are finite, and it’s essential to allocate them efficiently. With insights from the cost modelling process, you can prioritise tasks and allocate resources where they make the most significant impact. This optimisation enhances your chances of success while minimising wastage
  3. Empowering Informed Decision-Making: In the fast-paced world of product development, decisions need to be backed by data rather than intuition alone. The DA Signature Cost Modelling process empowers you to make informed decisions based on concrete information, increasing the likelihood of achieving your goals
