When companies assess a product, solution or technology, lifecycle cost and its impact on long-term profitability is an obvious part of investment calculations. Still many decision-makers seem to be making decisions based on today's cost, with little consideration for the effect of the lifecycle cost (LCC).
Lifecycle costing is a challenging task due to many reasons; complex business environment, lack of information, conflicting arguments, no standard methods for calculating LCC. Only a few companies apply lifecycle costing even if strategically focused efforts on lifecycle costing can generate significant financial returns.
