CASE STUDY: Nikola Advanced Injection Molding Cost Models

This case study will concentrate on how to add large injection molding machines for large complex plastic parts, add correct SVG hot drops, and real cost drivers. We will also discuss advances in molding machines and tool shop cutting speeds.

3 Key Takeaways:
1. Increase in tools is required due to vehicle design complexity and need for customization
2. Drastic increase in lead times, and costs; decline in skilled labor workers, increase in labor costs
3. Upcoming workforce gap in Tool & Die Sector and industry changes like electrification and technology convergence
