El Segundo, Calif.—August 7, 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 has released CATIA Machining Cost Estimator, which will be included as part of the SEER-for-CATIAv5 3.0 package.

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 now turn around cost estimates for complex machined parts in minutes with the visibility of a detailed SEER® for Manufacturing (SEER-MFG) analysis to back it up.

Key functionality includes the ability to create detailed machining part cost estimates for labor, material, and tooling costs, as well as to update and refresh estimates as the design matures. Users can create and save estimates for each part configuration to compare and trade options. They can also customize knowledge base templates and rules to fit their factory environments, labor rates, and processes. Findings can be shared with other SEER users to be incorporated into other estimates. Additionally, estimates can be reviewed in CATIA even if Machining Cost Estimator and/or SEER are not installed.

“We continue our commitment to provide rapid estimation capabilities from within CATIA to support design engineers around the world. Our previous CATIA integrations for estimating composite and sheet metal parts have been adopted with resounding success,” said Dan Galorath, president and CEO of Galorath Incorporated. “Whether you are supporting design to cost efforts, generating part bids or evaluating proposals, CATIA Machining Cost Estimator will make estimating faster and easier.”
