Methods Workshop LLC , a leading developer of methods engineering and labor costing solutions for the apparel and sewn products industries, announces that vertically integrated manufacturer INDUSTRIAS NETTALCO S.A. has successfully implemented the Engineered TruCost (ETC) solution at its Lima, Peru headquarters. After replacing its legacy costing software, the producer of fine cotton knits and family clothing reports significant improvements in system performance, costing accuracy, and user productivity. 
 
According to Hector Pacheco, Nettalco Manager of Engineering Development, “Because it has a more modern interface and architecture, ETC is much easier and faster than our old software. It gives us the accuracy and flexibility we need to better engineer our operational methods and determine costs even before we start production. With its advanced networking capabilities, we were also able to easily add two new workstations at our other facilities and can now share information like never before.”  
 
Engineered TruCost leverages advanced industry-specific motion/time standards and the latest Microsoft technologies to deliver these and other improvements for Nettalco. Methods Workshop developed ETC around the Microsoft .NET Framework to provide the ultimate in usability and performance. All Nettallco data is securely maintained and accessible through the Microsoft SQL Server database platform, which also simplifies and secures networking and across multiple locations. 
 
“We are pleased with the opportunity to help Nettalco upgrade their engineering and costing capabilities”, noted John Stern, President of Methods Workshop. “Their success serves as an example of how advancing beyond the limitations of legacy software can result in significant business improvements. As fashion and sewn products companies face ever-increasing cost and productivity pressures, the requirement for up-to-date systems becomes more obvious every day. ”
