SEER Project Management Tool Overview
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 determine 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 by Galorath solution suites include:
- SEER for Software: Estimate software development and ownership costs, schedule, risk, reliability
- SEER for Hardware, Electronics, and Systems: Macro Level development, prototypes, production, maintenance & support
- SEER for Manufacturing: Cost of manufacturing parts, processes, assembly
- SEER for Information Technology: Cost of information technology projects, operations, cloud or on premesis
- SEER for Systems Engineering: Costs of high level systems engineering in complicated systems
- SEER Cost-IQ: Cost Via Case Based Reasoning
Unlike most project management tools which focus on designing features and workflow, Galorath has invested decades in delivering a family of project management tools to help organizations model and evaluate project feasibility, driving costs out and quality in. SEER software solutions streamline and automate project estimation and project cost management, ensuring that projects are delivered on time, on budget, and as specified.
All SEER solutions are built on the same design principles, incorporating the following application elements:
An intuitive interface for defining and describing projects. Users can generate a new project from an existing project “template” or by adding and defining individual work elements. A series of pop-up windows and annotations guide users through the process of defining project scope, complexity, and technologies.
Sophisticated sector-specific mathematical models derived from extensive project histories, behavioral models, and metrics.
SEER Knowledge Bases serve as a virtual “in-house expert,” providing default project definitions, values, ranges, and calibrations based on comparable project histories. Enables users to develop first-look estimates when very little information is known, and to refine those estimates as details become available.
A variety of charts, graphs, and reports for quickly summarizing and presenting project outcomes and alternatives as well as work-in-progress. Open architecture and APIs ensure that SEER applications can be easily integrated with departmental productivity solutions and enterprise applications.
SEER by Galorath project management tools provide project planning, project estimating, project tracking, and project cost management software. These capabilities are often the missing link between project design and project execution, enabling organizations to rapidly establish an integrated project lifecycle process: Developing a concept > testing its feasibility > optimizing project costs, schedules, quality and risk > monitoring and controlling project progress > identifying when (and what) mid-course corrections will ensure a project stays on track.
