Computer Aided Price Quoting Package for Injection Mould Based on Standard Man-Hour Method


Article Preview

Mold companies are always facing the urgent price quotation requirements for plastic parts from customers in today’s competition market. This paper analyzed the price composition based on the standard man-hour method of plastic mould. Furthermore, the calculation of manufacturing cost for injecting mold was discussed. A computer aided quotation package for small and medium mould company was developed on SolidWorks software, by which the quotation of plastic mould can be obtained quickly. The application results of a number of actual cases show that the method can satisfy the engineering requirements of mold price.
