A true cost model analysis allows you to compare costs at two locations in the same country or region, taking into account all costs that will be associated with production and support. It can also give you a sense of the costs of your competitors.
It is important to note that a thorough cost model must include all costs associated with doing business in Mexico, except for raw materials. A cost model is not a startup model; a cost model must include all ongoing Mexican costs. A startup model is useful, but only for the initial phase. To be accurate, the cost model must include complete operational costs the manufacturer incurs in the course of production.
