Imagine a project management tool which would allow you to describe a project in a few simple steps, and based on sound science and applicable project histories, provide you with a most likely estimate for project cost, effort, and duration. Imagine you could analyze and test trade-offs in a matter of seconds by changing one or more project variables. Imagine you could specific percentage probabilities for achieving project objectives, and further, how those probabilities could be improved by small changes in various underlying constraints and assumptions.All of this ... and more ... is possible with a new kind of project management toolset: SEER by Galorath.
SEER for Software provides a systematic approach for estimating the cost, schedule, effort, defects and risk of software development and maintenance projects. Along with estimating project resources and schedule, SEER provides an unparalleled capability for trade-off and risk analysis, and contributes to the generation of realistic project plans, increasing the probability of a project''s success.
SEER for IT enables organizations to develop an early, accurate assessment of costs, schedules and risks for complex IT projects including: infrastructure, services, operations, and ongoing support. SEER-IT encompasses all phases of the project lifecycle: analysis, design, procurement, construction/build, distribution, test, training, ongoing operations and support, including decommissioning.
SEER for Hardware, Electronics and Systems provides total cost of ownership for the development of components, systems and integrated product assemblies from concept through design, test, production, operations, support and retirement. SEER-H assists with early ROM estimating
, trade-off analysis, proposal support, make/buy decisions, bid/no-bid decisions, budget forecasting, risk analysis and should-cost analysis.
SEER for Manufacturing estimates part and assembly costs for a variety of manufacturing processes. It allows the evaluation of alternatives that directly impact manufacturing costs by identifying the costdrivers, risks and ranges.SEER-MFG makes cost a key variable during the product design and build process cycle.
SEER support is provided by developers and consultants who use SEER models daily. It is available on an unlimited basis to all SEER clients. Galorath also maintains a User Support Library where registered users can download software upgrades, patches, and knowledge base updates, and access technical documents and estimating utilities.
SEER for Systems Engineering estimates systems engineering cost, schedule and effort with more fidelity than previously available. Unlike traditional wrap-factor approaches, SEER-SYS allows users to truly hone in on the characteristics of their system. Estimates are a function of system functional size along with adjustments from a number of related environmental factors.
Galorath consultants have hundreds of years of combined experience in project estimation, process design, cost analysis, and project management standards and best practices. This diversity of experience enables us to offer both broad and deep industry, project, and organizational awareness.

SEER provides estimation, planning and control vision for more successful projects. Know in advance and make informed decisions: The SEER estimation engines replicate real-world outcomes by combining sophisticated modeling technology with a database of industry and user-defined metrics.
How much more successful could your organization be if it was able to use our software cost estimating tools to determine, in advance, which projects would likely run into cost, schedule, or resource overruns? Or if you could ensure that all project managers had equal project and software estimation expertise? Or if every supplier negotiation began with a thorough, documented analysis of what a project should cost
? SEER is project estimating software.
How much more successful could your organization be if it was able to test numerous project design, staffing, and scheduling scenarios to assess what specific course of action was most likely to achieve project objectives? And further, to benchmark current project performance against industry or organizational trendlines? SEER is project analysis software.
How much more successful could your organization be if it was able to plan detailed and accurate project roadmaps, allocate resources, proactively address risk, and determine total cost of ownership
from concept, through design, development, production, operation, and support -- in one quarter of the time it takes you now? SEER is project planning software.
How much more successful could your organization be if it was able to monitor actual project progress against expected outcomes (cost, effort, schedule and quality), to determine what (if any) mid-course corrective actions are most likely to get your project back on track without compromising project objectives? SEER is project tracking software.
“I’ve been working with Galorath tools for over 15 years now and can’t imagine ever changing that. The SEER products are excellent, very powerful and very flexible. And they aren’t static – Galorath makes sure to update and modify them as technologies and methods evolve. Our experience with Galorath’s customer service has been outstanding. Someone is always available to answer questions, assist with technical issues, or to talk about the nuances of setting up a particular estimate. “ --Ian B., Booz Allen Hamilton

“SEER-SEM is an invaluable tool that allows us to provide timely, accurate and defensible software estimates for our clients. Compared to other software estimation tools I’ve used, SEER-SEM is by far the best.” -- Dan F., Cobec Consulting
KDS has used the SEER tools in the estimation process for a missile development program. The tools have proven to be very helpful and efficient when estimating the cost and the associated cost uncertainty for such a large project." -- Geir H.,Kongsberg
