Cost Management starts with the proposal and bidding process. The “CostFact” software system supports cost management throughout all shipbuilding stages including the early phases of design, engineering, calculations that accompany production, and finally to the analysis of a completed project. CostFact is the most popular maritime specialized costing software, and was developed in close cooperation with several of the world’s leading shipyards. This means that several best-practice methods have been incorporated into the system, covering all shipyard calculation demand.
EnterprisePlatform ensures the data is available
SSI’s EnterprisePlatform enables the enormous wealth of engineering information stored in ShipConstructor’s product data model (The ShipConstructor Marine Information Model or MIM), to be available to other programs such as CostFact. The EnterprisePlatform automatically gathers, formats and provides transparent information when needed by end-users.
