Cost Estimating

Breakdown Cube

Conceptual to Detailed Cost Estimating

Beginning with estimating, a vital part in project cost management, historical data is used to accurately predict all aspects of the project. Complex projects make a distinction between different phases. Each phase requires a unique set of approaches and methods in order to come to a reliable cost estimate of the project.

Cleopatra Enterprise is the professional cost estimating software for today’s cost estimator. With the intuitive user interface, preparing a solid and trustworthy cost estimate has never been easier.

Cleopatra offers all the latest techniques, such as location factor tables, smart cost models and flexible breakdown structures.

Therefore, many companies worldwide have chosen for Cleopatra to improve their cost estimating process, from the very first conceptual estimate up to a definitive estimate based on detailed quantities.

Supported by experienced estimators

Cost Management

Dashboard in Cleopatra Enterprise

Dedicated Cost Control and EVM

Next to cost estimation, Cleopatra Enterprise offers full project controls capabilities, including forecasting, Earned Value Management (EVM) and progress measurement. This results in a total cost management solution that enables you to close the loop between cost estimation and cost management.

With Cleopatra you are able to seamlessly translate your final cost estimate into a suitable control document. When executing your project you can easily feedback actual project data into your estimating knowledgebase, establishing a continuous improvement cycle.

Quick Out-of-the-Box Usability

Quick Out-of-the-Box Usability

A recognizable and easy-to-use layout of your cost report is available out-of-the-box. No extensive configuration is needed, you can setup your control document right away. Everyone who is used to work on their cost reports in Excel will intuitively find their way in Cleopatra.

Transparent Change Management

Transparent Change Management

Managing changes is essential in successfully performing cost control. Cleopatra uses a dedicated change register to keep track of changes and their status. The impact of changes on the project’s forecast can easily be visualized in Cleopatra, having a transparent overview at all times.

Real-time Dashboard Reports

Real-time Dashboard Reports

Being able to quickly present the project’s performance is essential during month-end meetings. Cleopatra provides configurable dashboard reporting that will clearly present the status of your project portfolio, giving you timely warning signals. Configure your dashboard to show live plots, cost reports, key (project) metrics and much more.

Project Analytics

Project Analytics

In-depth Project Metrics and Benchmarking

Executed projects provide a valuable source of information for cost engineers. With the Project Analytics capabilities in Cleopatra Enterprise you can easily perform portfolio analysis, compare cost estimates and extract important key metrics to benchmark against.

Being able to benchmark your estimate against comparable projects and historical data will increase the confidence in your estimate significantly.

Compare Estimates and Projects

Compare estimates and projects

The project analytics tool in Cleopatra Enterprise includes various techniques to easily compare different classes of estimates or comparable projects. This will immediately show any significant variances that need the attention of the cost estimator.

Perform scheduling and cash flow trending

Perform scheduling and cash flow trending

With the integrated scheduling tool users can setup the project schedule or import a schedule from Primavera P6 or MS Project. By linking the cost estimate to the project schedule, a cash flow curve can be derived, allowing for a solid analysis of the project’s business case.

Identify Cost Relationships

Identify Cost Relationships

With the regression analysis capabilities in Cleopatra Enterprise, cost estimating relationships can easily be found. By identifying the main cost drivers of your equipment, the impact of these cost drivers on the equipment cost can directly be captured in a cost model.

Managing project costs with metrics

Managing project costs with metrics and benchmarking

Metrics provide a powerful way of measuring the performance and health of your project. They can be categorized according to seven criteria: safety, time, cost, resources, scope, quality, and actions. Examples are the average waiting time, installed quantities or cost overrun. A wide range of metrics could be defined for every project.
