Hit your cost-down targets with less effort

CoLab gives you a way to standardize your cost reduction approach and run virtual or hybrid events — so you can spend less time on logistics, include more people, and start executing ideas sooner.

Get Started

Generate more cost reduction ideas during NPD

By giving engineering teams an easy way to interact with CAD data together,  CoLab makes it easy to generate more (and better) cost-reduction design ideas during new product development.

Include your extended team to make cost-saving decisions

When deadlines are tight, it's hard to include subject matter experts from other teams in design decisions, even if they could help cut costs. With CoLab, you can easily bring in experts from other areas during new product development, so you don’t miss chances to save money.

Implement ideas faster

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 allows you to prioritize ideas by effort, impact, and potential savings. Now you can effortlessly refine your long list of ideas, confidently decide which to implement, and quickly get the right people involved to start executing.

Johnson Controls delivers their cost reduction targets 2 years in a row with CoLab.
"We get a better benefit out of doing it virtually than we would have on the factory floor. With our normal in person events we’d find more than 100 opportunities for value-add on the models we’re reviewing. This year with our virtual events in CoLab, we’re averaging over 200."
