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 traditional or Agile 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 & Operations 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 cost drivers, risks and ranges.SEER-MFG makes cost a key variable during the product design and build process cycle. And SEER-3D and SEER <-> CATIA made cost available to engineers with CATIA or a digital twin.
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.
