Executive Summary

The economic downturn has companies scrambling to cut costs and generate cash - especially in the face of tight capital markets and the imploding financial sector.

What's more, they're using a detailed cost analysis, not best-guess benchmarking, to drive their redesign decisions.

When costs and cost drivers are truly transparent, the insights gained can be surprising and, if acted on, can improve a company's overall competitive position.
