Hyderabad, India, May 7, 2012: Mahindra Satyam, a leading global consulting, Engineering and IT services provider, today announced a global alliance partnership with Galorath Incorporated, leading provider of estimation solutions, called the SEER solutions. This partnership shall focus on the “SEER for Manufacturing” solution in order to provide Should Costing solutions to discrete manufacturing companies across industry domains like Aerospace, Industrial, Energy & automotive verticals.
Should Costing is a systematic methodology for cost modeling and benchmarking that brings in required transparency in the cost structure of a product. Additionally, this enables a manufacturer to investigate cost optimization through efficient supply chain, manufacturing processes and assembly techniques. Manufacturing companies have typically realized 20-30% reduction in their cost budgets through should cost estimation.
Through this alliance partnership, Galorath and Mahindra Satyam will complement each other’s strengths to provide Should Costing consulting solutions to customers based upon the estimation strengths within the “SEER for Manufacturing” solution. To this effect, Galorath and Mahindra Satyam have already started delineating a joint Go-to Market plan to tap into this market.
This is going to be a win-win relationship for both the partners. Galorath’s “SEER for Manufacturing” solution contains a comprehensive knowledge base of manufacturing processes covering state of practice and state of the art metallic, non-metallic, electronic fabrication and assembly processes, including machining, fabrication, welding, PCB & electrical assemblies, as well as the industry’s most comprehensive knowledge base for composites processes. This will help Mahindra Satyam’s cost estimation processes become more robust and comprehensive, as well as help address opportunities across a wide spectrum of industry domains. Galorath will benefit from Mahindra Satyam’s global presence and expertise in Manufacturing Engineering services.
“We are extremely pleased to have SEER for Manufacturing utilized by Mahindra Satyam in their offering of its Should Cost analysis services,” stated Dan Galorath, Galorath’s President and CEO. “Mahindra Satyam possesses highly qualified employees who are extremely capable in performing Should Cost estimating services utilizing SEER and enable us to collectively assist clients in obtaining fair prices for the fabrication of their designs.”
