LeanCOST® is an innovative software solution for quick and easy cost estimation of products and processes for single components and assemblies both metal and plastic.
LeanCOST® is the innovative software solution for manufacturing cost estimation from the early design stages. LeanCOST starts from the 3D CAD model and/or design specifications, and analyses the geometry of both single components and complex assemblies to automatically extract the geometrical parameters needed to get a complete automatic calculation. LeanCOST defines the technological parameters and suggests the best production process according both to general and specific customer's contexts. LeanCOST has a standard DB of machines and raw materials (metals and plastics) populated with worldwide data, which can be also enriched according to the specific customers’ needs and context of applications.

Loccioni Group reduces waste & increases efficiency with LeanCOST®
LeanCOST defines a manufacturing cost referring to raw material, operations, set up and ancillary activities. Moreover, it simplifies the work of people managing manufacturing costs by providing simplified, intuitive and easy interfaces. It is the ideal supporting tool to reduce the overall time for cost estimation, to improve the cost control within the different company departments and to standardize the estimation procedures and all team members can easily handle and share the cost-related knowledge.
Hyperlean develops and sells innovative software tools to support the product development cycle and the management of the company’s know-how. All the tools have the aim of simplifying industrial processes and data management to reduce time to market and guarantee the high quality of the products. Hyperlean is an Italian brilliant start-up born in 2010. Its industrial partner is Biesse Group, a leader company in advanced machine tools. The main product is LeanCOST, a CAD-based software platform that simplifies and speeds up the estimation of manufacturing costs from the earliest design stages. Hyperlean fulfills its offer with consulting services dedicated to the introduction of systems in specific industrial sectors with a continuous support.
“LeanCOST® is an innovative and fascinating technology, and we are proud to be its users and benefit from it.”

Key Features & Benefits
LeanCOST assesses the cost of design alternatives from the early design stages and contributes to creating an efficient product design process. In this way, the necessary changes to optimize the product and achieve the best solution can be easily identified, applied and verified.
Product cost is one of the main factors in choosing the most promising solution. Hence, its accurate estimation from the preliminary design phase is fundamental for effective cost optimization.
LeanCOST is the most innovative CAD-based software for manufacturing cost management, offering many advantages to companies:
- Fast and precise: Using LeanCOST does not require any preliminary effort because it is able to compute the cost in real time. Thanks to its integration with all 3D CAD systems, no conversion is required to read the 3D geometry and all attributes are considered in order to find the best solution.
- Accurate: LeanCOST allows very precise cost estimation since it is based on analytic costing procedures and its database contains knowledge from several industries.
- Knowledge promotion: LeanCOST increases company awareness on manufacturing processes. Different interfaces simplify the work of people managing manufacturing costs and creating PDF standard reports, allowing the cost estimation process to be easily shared inside the company.
- Flexible: LeanCOST is highly customizable according to company needs, such as the parameters definition, costing strategies and rules.
- Powerful and integrated: LeanCOST can be easily integrated with other systems (ERP, PDM, PLM).
