Galorath's Ian Brown will be presenting this paper at the Canada ICEAA conference this week" Too often, organizations that contract for software development services are at the mercy of vendors for cost and schedule estimates. Once a program office releases a request for proposal for software development, it must somehow evaluate the validity of cost and schedule estimates that come back with the proposals. Or a program might have a limited budget or schedule but not a clear understanding of …

El Segundo, Calif.—December 4, 2017— Galorath Incorporated, a California-based software firm whose customers include Airbus; BAE Systems; Boeing; Lockheed Martin; Northrop Grumman; and the U.S. Department of Defense announces a three-year extension of its Certificate of Networthiness (CON) for the U.S. Army.
Army Regulation (AR) 25-1 mandates the assessment of NetOps products against the architecture to ensure they meet functional and interoperability requirements within the Army Enterprise. The CON approval process insures all NetOps products – software, tools or systems are compliant.
Award of the SEER CON involved an extensive …
If you’re supporting design to cost efforts, generating part bids, or evaluating vendor proposals, you’ve likely wished for a way to make estimating more accurate and efficient. At Galorath, we believe that being able to get from CAD to Cost offers significant advantages. With this, we’ve developed some game-changing solutions.

Tonya: Good morning, I'm Tonya Weger. Thank you for joining me for Galorath Podcasts. In our podcast series, I will discuss some of the most relevant topics of the day with a succession of experienced …
The definition of the verb, “to estimate,” is to produce a statement of the approximate value of some quantity. Estimates are based upon incomplete, imperfect knowledge and assumptions about the future. Most importantly, however, all estimates have uncertainty. A manager can use the size of this uncertainty in conjunction with other factors such as perceived risks, funding constraints, and business objectives to make decisions about a project.
A 10-Step software estimation process that is integrated with the software development process can help projects establish realistic and credible plans to implement the project requirements and satisfy commitments. It also can support …
Software modernization projects are becoming increasingly critical to businesses as mainframe hardware ages out, people retire, and skill sets are lost or forgotten. Concurrently, available resources and budgets are becoming increasingly tight. This leaves management with the challenges of dealing with the sometimes fragile software iron triangle (scope, resources, schedule and quality). This presentation addresses using software estimation processes and risk management components to produce adequate solutions: on-premises, cloud, insourced or outsourced. As part of this presentation, estimation bias mitigation is addressed as well as the cost and benefit of outsourcing solutions.

CATIA Machining Cost Estimator makes rapid cost estimates of machined parts directly within CATIA v5® using innovative methods of processing solid model geometry data. This capability puts the power of cost trades directly in the hands of design engineers in their native environment. Users can …
184.108.40.206 Open Source Software
Open source software is a great advantage when building or enhancing software systems. Open source provides functionality without all the development work. Open source can be components such as a graphics library or an entire application. The strict definition of open source software says the source code is free. By this definition, many items people refer to as open source are not. For example, Google Docs is free but it is not open source. Those items are generally classified as Commercial Off the Shelf (COTS). Since in many cases the world uses these terms interchangeable this …
