SEER ESTIMATION SOLUTIONS

 SEER for Manufacturing: Aerospace plugin available

Ensures that all estimates are managed via a single estimation solution ensuring consistency, simplifying training, and reducing the effort needed to manage and maintain the estimation environment.

1. Provides realistic cost estimates for labor, material, tooling, set-up, and re-work.
2. Identifies costs drivers early in the design process.
3. Evaluates parts, processes, and assemblies.
4. Enables users to test, manage, and optimize manufacturing and assembly costs and risk trade-offs.
5. Assesses both productivity and efficiency.
6. Provides an objective basis (“should-cost” model) for evaluating supplier estimates.

 

SEER for MFG with “aerospace plugin”:

It provides the most detailed and flexible modeling  environment. This model was developed in conjunction with the U.S. aerospace  industries’ leading companies and has an aerospace-focus in Manufacturing  Aero structures/ Components.

SEER for HARDWARE, ELECTRONICS AND SYSTEMS

Control products across the product  lifecycle:

Development Production  Operations  Support  Retirement

1. Predict Labor Hours and Cost
2. Build component and system-level costs, project estimates for labor-hours and cost, materials, tooling costs, and pport
3. Leverage the industry’s most comprehensive project Knowledge Bases to generate viable estimates even before final design and Bill of Materials
4. Understand and manage cost drivers and project risks
5. Analyze complex and inter-dependent lifecycle trade-offs: design, production, operations, and support trade-offs
6. Analyze “Make versus Buy” decisions
7. Evaluate quality and reliability
8. Estimate Mechanical, Electrical, Structural, Electronic or Hydraulic Projects.

 

SEER for Software:

Develop accurate project estimates more quickly based on sophisticated project simulation/parametric modeling technology.
1.  Test projects in the conceptual phase when little information is known.
2. Understand and manage software project cost drivers.
3. Develop realistic schedule, cost, and staffing estimates based on the industry’s most comprehensive software project Knowledge Bases.
4. Analyze complex and interdependent project options and trade-offs across the software lifecycle (design, development, maintenance, enhancement and support.)
5.  Evaluate potential cost-benefits of commercial off-the-shelf software (COTS), software re-use, and modern development methodologies.
7. Assess risks/determine probabilities for achieving schedule and cost objectives.
8. Integrate SEER for Software estimates into SEER for IT and SEER for Hardware, Electronics & Systems.

SEER for IT:

Develop accurate project estimates more quickly based on sophisticated project simulation/parametric modeling technology.
1. Assess project feasibility in the conceptual phase when little information is known.
2. Understand and manage IT project cost drivers.
3.Avoid surprises to management and stakeholders with achievable estimates and plans.
4. Develop realistic schedule, cost, and staffing estimates for IT projects and their ongoing operations.
5. Analyze complex and interdependent project options and trade-offs across the IT lifecycle (design, development, maintenance, and operations)
6. Assess risks/determine probabilities for achieving schedule and cost objectives.
7. Provide a consistent framework to drive a standardized and repeatable process for estimating and planning IT projects.
