TWO COOL® Software Now Incorporates Both Step and Flow Cost and Capacity
January 30, 2020 (Pleasanton, CA) – Wright Williams & Kelly, Inc. (WWK), the global leader in Cloud-based cost and productivity management software and consulting services, announced today that it has finished the integration of PRO COOL® for Process Sequences into its flagship cost of ownership (COO/TCO) and overall equipment efficiency (OEE) software, TWO COOL®.
By adding PRO COOL® capabilities, TWO COOL® can now estimate the costs and capacity of sequential process flows, not just a single process step. PRO COOL® connects cost and capacity information from TWO COOL® models for each process step in the sequence allowing for efficient data reuse and minimal new data entry.
Some of the management questions that PRO COOL® answers include:
- What is the COO of the process sequence?
- Where is the bottleneck?
- What are the cost drivers?
- How much equipment is needed?
- What are the impacts of a ramp up or ramp down?
TWO COOL® v4.1 capitalizes on over 25-years of enhancements and applications history from over 3,000 users on 5 continents. TC4 is built on a modern visual development platform and powerful relational database backend designed specifically to take advantage to today’s powerful Cloud architecture.
“By integrating PRO COOL® capabilities into TWO COOL®, we are providing our clients with the ability to extend their analyses well beyond a single process step while leveraging the data they have already entered,” states David W. Jimenez, WWK’s President & CEO. “Traditionally, clients looking to examine the cost and capacity for process flows needed to use full factory analysis tools. They now have a cost effective and efficient choice for those processes that fall between single steps and the entire factory.”
