Today, corporate survival is dependent upon the ability to formulate and execute the right strategy in increasingly competitive markets. Wright Williams & Kelly, Inc. (WWK) has the unique capability to assist our clients in understanding the cost elements that drive their businesses and further assist them in formulating the right operational and market strategies.
WWK provides state-of-the-art software for productivity improvement and cost management. We are the leading developer and worldwide consultant for operational cost modeling and cost of ownership (COO) for the semiconductor as well as leaders in photovoltaics, solid state lighting/light emitting diodes, nanotechnology, micro electro-mechanical systems, thin film record heads, magnetic media, flat panel displays, and healthcare .
Without equal, Wright Williams & Kelly, Inc. is dedicated to the research and development of software that helps our clients make better decisions. Since 1991, we’ve delivered in excess of our client’s expectations. In return, we have received their trust and satisfaction and their most prestigious accolades – like the Texas Instruments Supplier Excellence Award.
Wright Williams & Kelly, Inc. is a world recognized leader in operations analysis and cost modeling. Its flagship product, TWO COOL® is available for numerous application specific requirements including: Wafer Fabrication, Assembly & Packaging, Mask & Reticle Manufacturing, Printed Circuit Board Manufacturing, Flat Panel Display and Solar Panel Manufacturing, as well as user defined manufacturing and assembly processes. TWO COOL® is the world’s only comprehensive set of Cost of Ownership (COO) and Overall Equipment Efficiency (OEE) analysis tools. When you need to know the cost impacts of new product developments, capital equipment purchases, materials changes, alternative processes, or OEE improvements, TWO COOL® is THE choice.
PRO COOL® offers the power to look at advanced applications of cost of ownership and capacity planning. Sophisticated analyses involving Process Sequences or Test Systems are constructed using TWO COOL® data sets and the elegantly simple PRO COOL® user interface. So, when you need to understand the cost impacts of alternative processes or test strategies, PRO COOL® meets the challenge.
WWK also offers a complete line of full facility analysis products. Factory Commander® is a financial evaluation model that can be applied to any discrete workflow. It performs high level cost analyses of overall facility and individual product/service costs, capacity, and revenues. These features can be applied to strategic new facility design as well as tactical current operation optimization. Designed to answer your key business and financial questions, Factory Commander® reduces investment risk by allowing “what if” analyses of virtual facilities.
Factory Explorer® is an integrated capacity, cost, and discrete-event simulation analysis tool designed to help you make smart business decisions. The Factory Explorer® capacity analysis engine quickly predicts system capacity and bottlenecks; the cost analysis engine calculates product/service costs and margins; the fast discrete-event simulation engine predicts your range of cycle times and work-in-process. So, if you need to know optimal facility size, how to reduce cycle time and product/service costs, locations of bottlenecks, or supply chain risk levels for lean manufacturing, Factory Explorer® is your competitive advantage.
Previous energy production models were limited to break-even analyses. Application to situations where the project owner is interested in revenue (profit) generation or in installations where the electricity produced is displacing some or all of the high cost tier grid supply, there needed to be a new solution. For these applications, WWK developed Total Cost of Ownership for Energy™ (TCOe™). TCOe™ includes all the capabilities of Levelized Cost of Energy (LCOE) calculations plus factors such as revenue/displacement and cost factors applicable to both rooftop and utility scale applications.
COOLSoft™ was designed to give software developers an easy to use, predictive software development cost model. Attributes can be entered to describe the development effort by hardware, personnel and software. COOLSoft™ utilizes a hybrid approach of intermediate and detailed versions of the Constructive Cost Model (COCOMO). This allows for the reuse of existing code, development of new code, the purchase and integration of third party code, as well as hardware integration. The output is then displayed as man-months of programming effort, calendar schedule, support costs and hardware costs.
