To understant the average cost of assembly as a percentage of total finished goods costs in the manufacturing of consumer electronics, automotives, and medical devices.
Assembly costs can account for as much as 50% of the total manufacturing cost, especially if there isn't proper assembly planning during product development.
A study on the costs associated with producing a steel unibody designs of cars of different variants (entry-level luxury sedans, crossovers, and luxury sedans) revealed that assembly costs accounted for 37% of the total cost in all variants. The biggest cost was fabrication cost which accounted for 53% of the total cost.
Our preliminary research didn't reveal additional data on the average cost of assembly as a percentage of total finished goods costs for manufacturing in medical deviceand consumer electronics manufacturing.
Only the project owner can select the next research path.
