NRE - Computer Definition
(Non-Recurring Engineering) Refers to the cost of creating a new product, which is paid up front. Contrast with "production cost," which is ongoing and based on the quantity of material produced. For example, in the semiconductor industry, the NRE is the cost of developing the circuit design and photomasks; the production cost is the cost to manufacture each wafer.
