We will use Construction positions from Quantity Surveyor to operational usage and analyzing. At any time we can check out how much work is done by position for the required period. It is possible to monitor the actual expenses incurred in order to perform the position. At the same position it is possible to see what has already been invoiced. It is also possible to monitor and get the real costs, both in amount and in percentage. This monitoring is possible for each specific position or for the entire position group.
One or more versions of normative and price analysis for each normative can be defined for each construction position. It is possible to make the selection of the best norms in the desired position on the actual costs basis. These data are calculated using an automated calculation of cost of materials, products and resources cost accounting. Beside the actual costs, the system can perform analysis and costs on vendor quotes or planed costs basis. Standard processing like “adjust cost of items” is fully applicable in this process.
Actual costs are calculated based on the direct and indirect material cost, as well as the calculation of the finished products cost based on the real material cost and actual consumption in manufacturing capacity. In a similar method, the system enables a calculation of the actual cost of engaged resources, based on the actual costs that are defined for each resource, as well as the total time of their engagement.
Based on the so-defined positions and norms, creating each project and monitoring its life cycle, it is possible to create a Bill of Quantities and follow it through all phases of contracting. In BoQ, we enter all construction position for project with their description and quantity, based on contract. Costs of construction position, we automatic calculate from linked norms and price analysis. On the other hand, actual cost of resources and items (material and goods) in price analysis, we get from integrated automatic cost accounting. From this document, we can make real analysis with cost, price and margin for complete project and for each position, and we can print Construction Quote.
Besides defining all entities and Bill of Quantities as a single primary document, it is possible to create dynamic execution plans on these data basis. This dynamic execution plan reserves necessary inventories and resources, bearing in mind the availability of all resources. Complete inventory reserving is integrated with standard material planning in requisition and planning worksheets in NAV.
