Our consultants are experts in business process improvement, software selection and ERP implementation – and they bring deep industry experience to every engagement.
Recently, Ultra Senior Consultant Dave Lechleitner shared his in-depth knowledge of costing and pricing in the metal fabrication industry with The Fabricator, the leading magazine for the metal forming and fabricating industry.
“The past six months have been difficult for fabricators,” Lechleitner says. “During times of economic uncertainty, it’s critical to get the business fundamentals right.
“To operate profitably,” he continues, “you need to understand manufacturing costs and know how to apportion them to the parts you produce. And you need to price your work effectively and correctly. Of course, it’s not that simple – there’s an art to it.”
