"The SEER tools are equally strong at estimating both software and hardware costs. When you use a parametric model like SEER, you reduce uncertainty by deconstructing the project into smaller, well-defined components, the cost estimate of which can be more readily critiqued by the technical and program management staff. SEER is easy [to use] and intuitive."

“We have been using SEER MFG, and the 3D platform for composite, sheet metal, wiring harnesses, machining and others since at least 2012. What we like is the coverage of multiple manufacturing processes, the ease to customize, and the excellent service support from Galorath. Since introducing the 3D platform, we have gained a lot of speed, providing a different estimation, and it is even easier to use. We recommend 100% the use of this software for cost estimation.”

“Knowledge bases based on historical NASA, AF, and Commercial Satellite contractors that are easy to use and select from program office technical parameters. It is easy to incorporate into the Automated Cost & Integrating tool to include other program costs and complete what-ifs for almost any scenario. Outstanding to say based on the industry average and have any challenges have to answer why it is more or less than the industry.”
