Manufacturing Insights Platform


aPriori is a product of aPriori

aPriori is the leading Manufacturing Insights Platform. It delivers strategic insights so manufacturers know how to design a product and where to manufacture it to optimize cash flow, accelerate revenue growth and improve margins.

This collaborative software combines Product Cost Management, Design for Manufacturing and Sustainability, and Supplier Collaboration capabilities. The technology includes more than 450 manufacturing process simulations and 87 regional economic models. As a result, manufacturers yield insights that accelerate time to market by 20%, while achieving in huge cost savings and a decreased CO2 footprint. aPriori's Manufacturing Insights Platform connects Design Engineers, Cost Experts, and Sourcing/Procurement teams.

aPriori provides a unique, end-to-end digital twin solution that empowers manufacturers to identify new opportunities rapidly for innovation and cost savings.

With aPriori, customers achieve a ~600% ROI within three years and payback within six months of adopting the software platform. aPriori also boosts manufacturers' digital thread investments i.e. in the creation of a continuous connection and collaboration between all phases of a product's life cycle, from conception and design to production, maintenance and possible recycling. And this promotes business agility and risk minimization.

Upload any CAD file into digital factories and aPriori will automatically generate a detailed manufacturability analysis in real time.
