Utilization of Technical Data for Cost Estimation and Change Management

Presentation in Charleston, SC, USA on March 7, 2017 at the All Panel Meeting of the US American National Shipbuilding Research Program by Pat David (SSI – ShipConstructor Software USA, Inc.) & Jan Fischer (COSTFACT GmbH).

This presentation will explore the relationships available across the shipbuilding enterprise with advanced cost reporting, estimating, and management capabilities available, and how they can be further improved through the integration with engineering and design processes. In particular how initial design cost estimating accuracy can be significantly improved, how material management can be tied to cost management during the detailed design phase with parametric calculations, and a means for improving the capture, planning, and forecasting of direct change-order cost impacts to a ship program as they occur.
