What We Do

Project/Program Management

Total Cost Management (TCM) is a systematic approach to managing cost throughout the life cycle of any enterprise, program, facility, project, product or service. The TCM Framework is a structured, annotated process map that for the first time explains each practice area of the cost engineering field in the context of its relationship to the other practice areas including allied professions. 


The Cost Estimate Classification System maps the phases and stages of project cost estimating together with a generic project scope definition maturity and quality matrix, which can be applied across a wide variety of process industries

Planning and Scheduling

Determine a project's objectives with identification of the activities to be performed, methods and resources to be used for accomplishing the tasks, assignment of responsibility and accountability, and establishment of an integrated plan to achieve completion as required

Cost Engineering

Incorporate a more systematic organization of cost engineering subjects to better differentiate between general supporting knowledge (e.g., statistics, elements of cost, etc.), and specific practice knowledge used in particular functions or processes (e.g., cost estimating, planning and scheduling, etc.)

Decision and Risk Management

Analyze investment alternatives and determine whether, how and when to allocate the enterprise’s limited resources to them;

Increase the probability that a planned asset, project or portfolio achieves its objectives
