- Secondary Support Costs
- Floor Space/Most Efficient/Automation
- Secondary Capital Costs
- Part Quality
Selection of the best machine and process for the particular part/volume is more critical to reduce lifetime costs than the original capital cost of the equipment. This is particularly applicable if machine can be re-deployed to exceed the life of the part contract.
