Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) - effectiveness under uncertainty conditions

TCO-effectiveness under uncertainty conditions
The operator of a robotic system, e.g. a small or mediums-sized enterprise (SME), needs a system that is not just cheap (in terms of low investment costs); the SME needs a system that is cost-effective in all phases of its life-cycle. Thus, our combined technical and economic objective is to increase the life-cycle effectiveness for the owner of the robotic system, and to support the SME by providing tools for estimating the production costs and the return on any further investment.
