Generate more (and better) ideas when you use CoLab for your cost reduction or value analysis/value engineering (VA/VE) initiatives. CoLab makes it easy to communicate about design with large groups, collaborate cross-functionally, and have more meaningful back-and-forth conversations that spark new ideas.
Before, you had to get everyone in one room to run a cost down event. Now, CoLab gives you an easy way to host virtual or hybrid events. That means you can include more people, get more input, and hold more events, more often — all while saving big bucks by spending less on travel.
Here’s the problem with sticky notes on a whiteboard: sometimes, ideas get lost in translation. With CoLab, you don’t have to waste time searching for answers to questions like, “what part number were they talking about when they wrote this?” You can comment directly on 3D models and drawings. That means more time to focus on actual engineering work, like implementing those changes in production.
Cost-saving ideas only work if they get implemented, so we take the admin work off your plate and let you focus on executing. CoLab automatically records ideas as you create them and the Track feature gives you a bird’s-eye view of all your ideas in one place. So it’s easy to discuss, prioritize, or follow up on any idea at any time.
