Fixed Manufacturing Costs

The fixed production costs are those costs that remain constant regardless of the production volume.

Goto the Prototype Stage in the DecisionCrafter NPD.xls menu.  Click on Fixed production costs. This will take you to the Prototype Stage menu. Click on CONTRIBUTION SUMMARY in the Prototype stage menu and enter the fixed production costs for each year of the pre-production stage. Although the model has made the Contribution Margin calculations you must still enter the Fixed Manufacturing Costs. Data input cells are shown below and have been shaded to help you identify them.
