SEER Software

  • Cost Estimation
  • Project Management
  • Tracking Projects
  • Consulting


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.
IT estimation


SEER for IT enables organizations to develop an early, accurate assessment of costs, schedules and risks for IT projects and their operations, helping to maximize productivity and output with fixed or declining budgets.SEER for IT has a collection of IT estimation elements (process models) which can be used.
Hardware estimation

SEER for Hardware

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.
Manufacturing estimation


SEER for Manufacturing estimates manufacturing processes for part and assembly costs. 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.
services estimation

How it works

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 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.
