Modern Machine Shop
MTI Systems has integrated its cost-estimating software program, Costimator JS, with JobBoss, a shop-management program developed by Exact Software. Costimator JS estimates cycle times and costs for quoting purposes, while JobBoss monitors job status, shipping schedules and other shop activity. The integration of the two programs will allow Costimator JS to export data such as machine cycle times, labor cost and material usage directly into JobBoss. The company says this will not only reduce errors and expenses incurred by manual data entry, but also increase productivity, versatility and cost savings.
