Increase your profitability with detailed cost analyses.

With this methodology, we enable detailed simulations of cost structures as a base for more successful and fact-based negotiations.

You can benefit from:

Create calculations five times faster. 

AI-algorithms support bottom-up calculations in seconds, ensuring faster and consistent calculation creation.

Reduced spending

Due to more successful and fact-based negotiations which are based on our detailed transparency of cost structure, Tset helps you quickly reduce your spending. 

Increased efficiency 

Standardized cost-breakdowns can be configured in Tset so that you achieve more at the same time by using the automated calculation modules.

Don’t just take our word for it

World-leading players of the manufacturing industry already rely on Tset.

Sustainability and digitalization are important levers and focal points for the ZF Group. We rely on Tset because it is a modern solution that offers us efficiency gains and transparency in the RfQ phase.

How exactly does Tset work?

Our enterprise cloud-solution for Product Cost and Carbon Management combines data-driven algorithms and hands-on industry knowledge, saving cost and carbon in just five simple steps:

01 Define

02 Create

03 Analyze

04 Adjust

05 Collaborate

Describe your components by entering just a few parameters and select a shape to create calculations within minutes by using automated algorithms or by uploading your own 3D model.

An analysis of all cost & carbon drivers will be calculated based on AI-algorithms and an internal knowledge base. Get a rough estimate for cost & carbon, or explore the fine details with just a click.

Instant data-driven calculations give you a detailed analysis of all cost & carbon drivers, helping you understand the dynamics between technical requirements, commercial constraints and sustainability targets over your whole product range.

Gain greater transparency and identify potentials by creating scenarios and comparing results with ease, e.g. comparison of supplier breakdown, currency changes, quantity units etc.

The central knowledge base for cost and CO₂ information aids in uncovering optimization opportunities among various departments, allowing simple action through direct communication via the tool.

The main challenges you face.

Tset boldly faces these challenges with its unique combination of industry know-how and innovative software solutions.


Incomplete spend analysis due to resource limitations

Without conducting a detailed spend analysis, businesses lack the insight needed to identify savings opportunities and optimize their spending.


Price negotiations are based on opinions, not facts

In negotiations, it is often the case that technical parameters are discussed instead of the price. The price is then derived from the technical data.


Non-uniform quote structures lead to overheads for purchaser

When suppliers provide non-uniform quote structures, purchasers face increased overhead costs as they struggle to compare and evaluate quotes effectively.

Data driven calculation modules

Algorithms based on AI, geometric analysis and heuristic enable faster and more consistent calculation creation.

01 Automated calculations
 based on user input

02 Detailed cost / CO₂ breakdown

03 Interactively adjust calculation

Describe your component
with less than 6 parameters.

Calculate based on AI algorithms and internal knowledge base.

Get transparency & identify potentials (e.g. comparison supplier breakdown).

Description of bottom-up capability cost & CO₂

Tset gives a detailed simulation of cost structure, enabling more successful and fact-based negotiations.


Emissions and costs are determined precisely, simultaneously and with the by-cause principle


High degree of validity and traceability of results and cost / CO₂ derivations


Transparency supports the fact-based identification and realization of improvement potentials in cost / CO₂

Cost and CO₂ breakdown integrations

Standardized cost-breakdown can be configured in Tset and used during sourcing activities.
