Detailed Cost Analysis for Ergonomic Matting

Part I.
Establish a Relative Value

Confirm the Purpose
The primary purpose of an anti-fatigue ergonomic mat is to provide a platform of comfort to all those who stand at work.

Scale the performance

  • A. Promote early trial programs in sufficiently large numbers of mats, people and time.
B. Review of data
  • Objective - Did the mat perform as expected on paper?
  • Subjective - Take great value in the opinions of users.
C. Scale performance
1-10 (Very poor to very good).

Multiply Performance times Warranty and divide by Cost:


Part II.
Compare the cost of the Mat to cost of Labor:

Determine cost of matting per station (example):
24 Sq. Ft x $12.00 = $288.00

Determine the total cost labor per station over the life of the mat:
$35.00 per hour x 2 shifts x 8 years (32,000 hours) = $1,100.000.00

Compare cost of mat to labor :

Pat III. Justification:
Ask, is the cost of the mat's performance over time justified by its cost relative to the cost of labor over the same time?

Give-in Early. Give-up Last.
And be quick about it - for a long time.
