aPriori (Concord, MA) announced the general availability of the latest release of its software platform. aPriori 2012r1 offers new capabilities and enhancements that expand the platform’s cost optimization functionality with new baseline processes for manufacturers. It is able to quickly and precisely determine the cost of a part or product by automatically pulling geometric and feature information from a CAD model and leveraging its intelligent cost models to determine reasonable default inputs once the user has selected the manufacturing process, materials and the factory or region where it will be produced. New baseline cost models in aPriori 2012r1 include thermoforming, structural foam molding, and reaction injection molding.
