Totel Cost of Ownership Calculation
SEMI and VDMA jointly developed a Total Cost of Ownership in PV Manufacturing Guide, it examines strategy-oriented cost management including detailed life cycle models, such as total cost of ownership and life cycle costs. An excel file was prepared by leading cell and module manufacturers to support the understanding of cost drivers in the manufacturing process. The file is referencing to the SEMI standards E10, E35 and E79 (not included). For "real" CoO calcuation SEMI recommends professional software that is available on the market. Use the "PV CoO Guide" as an explanation for the TCO excel-calculation file
"PV CoO Template".
