I have recently been put in charge of a small equipment engineering team and have been tasked with organizing and driving the project management of the team. One of the things I am trying to develop is a standardized format for project proposals, justifications and timelines. One of the things I have not been able to find yet is a well-formed cost analysis template.
The template would include such things as engineering and development time/cost, comparing alternate solutions, etc. Does anyone know of a simple template that I can use (MS Excel or some other wide-spread software preferrably).

There is proven benefit for product development teams in using an integrated design and data management system.
However, not all product teams can afford, need or want all the various modules in an enterprise PLM system.
Rapid prototyping has become a game-changing innovation for designers, engineers and manufacturers. Previously, the process of creating wood or metal prototypes took weeks or months and the cost was often so prohibitive that designers skipped prototypes entirely and went directly from CAD to tooling.
