Our SEER for Manufacturing (formally SEER-DFM) and now abbreviated SEER-MFG, uses what we call bottoms up parametrics.. Bottoms up parametrics differ from general parametric estimation modeling in a few respects:
- Bottoms Up Parametrics Don't Necessarily Minimize the Number of Inputs
- Bottoms Up Parametrics ask for detailed levels that traditional parametric estimating would not.
I was briefed on a new tooling analysis method that actually allows the user to specify specific tools if they want to. Way more detail than a traditional parametric model. But exactly what the bottoms up people desire.…
