This is the only thing I'm going to disagree with here. The cost of components should have a large bearing on full cost of a product. Much more with small products like synths, than something like cars. But if I am looking into producing a product the first thing I look at are what the components are going to cost me. Then I figure out what the market will buy what I am producing for. The last thing I do is look at man hours/labor. Because if it's not worth it after price of components, why even look into labor?
