Reverse Cost Analysis Helps Manufacturers and Investors Make Better Multi-Million Dollar R&D Decisions

FARMINGTON, Conn., Oct. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- "Reverse-cost analysis" is the process of disassembling a device into its component parts in order to identify the core technology within and calculate the cost to manufacture the device. The results of these studies can be used to pre-analyze the cost of potentially expensive projects at a Research and Development level, to enhance the negotiation power of purchasing managers, and to benchmark competitors' products.


Global Information Inc (GII) is pleased to release, in cooperation with partner firm System Plus Consulting, three significant and detailed new reverse-cost analyses: 

Texas Instrument DLP Pico (MT) projector family: DLP nHD, DLP 0.3 WVGA, DLP 0.17 HVGA Reverse Costing Analysis
