People often want to rush out to buy evaluation software or takeoff software without first trying to define their internal evaluation process. Once the estimation process is clearly defined, only then can we really try to divide the process into multiple parts. Typically, market segments are actually taking off. Take off what you might want to know? This is like a million dollar question. This article will describe the takeoff software process that is typically associated with evaluating software processes. Takeoff software processes can often provide material and takeoff procedures for some people and many others to create estimates or recommendations. This review or comparison will not attempt to explain the estimation software process, but it will look for an effective number of takeoff thoughts among the estimators in order to find out which products are considered your way. These are the authors' views
I will review and compare the three types of measurement takeoff products:
It should be noted that these measurement takeoff procedures are just measurements of takeoff procedures rather than estimation procedures
2) Screen of On Center Software Takes Off
3) Electronic Plan Takeoff Software
All three products have their advantages, however Planwift and On-Screen Takeoff are independent products, and Electronic Plan Takeoff actually Microsoft Excel dynamically integrates in real-time, which means it will start and finish and save in Excel. They are all integrated with Excel, but you will have to evaluate your thinking process and decide which of the three products will fit your way of thinking. For example, when you get a plan, what is the first thing you do? Usually, you start to look through the plan to see how the project is involved and what type of work you think will appeal to your company. Then, when you decide to estimate this work, it is often time to start evaluating your 80% construction industry estimation company by opening your Excel template. You can rename the spreadsheet as a new job or project and then take off. Here's where the differences are:
In Planswift, you can decide what kind of drawings you are drawing, and then perform measurements of what you plan to take off. Unfortunately, this is not exactly the idea of an estimator. Planwift can indeed add a takeoff project by naming and then performing the takeoff, which is somewhat a very manual and slow process. They also provide you with the ability to apply an assembly to take off to aggregate the number of items in the assembly. It is estimated that the personnel's idea is not complete. It forces you to jump to a different screen, which slows down the process. Usually, the main start of any person's takeoff process, or some people may think it is a list method, starts with your own project spreadsheet. These items can be item items or can be assembly system items within the scope. Either way, starting with the main spreadsheet in Excel, for example, many estimators think this is a risk reduction tool, not forgetting what they usually take off. Since Planswift is an independent takeoff program, if Excel is your estimation system, it will usually save your takeoff image in Planswift instead of the Excel estimate. If you use Excel, you must manually save the takeoff measurement numbers in Excel and manually save the takeoff image in Planwift or elsewhere, instead of the Excel where the takeoff quantity is located. Similarly, if you want to integrate with Excel, they will force you to export or import takeoff items from Excel instead of dynamically integrating them into Excel. However, they can dump plan amounts from Planswift to any Excel spreadsheet or Word document. The main purpose or main focus of the program is measurement, so it does a good job in this area. Most of the other features require you to jump to different screens. Basically, you relax your thoughts about your location. There are some functions trying to solve the estimation process, but Planwift lacks many functions to become a complete estimation system; it is one of instead of . Planwift does integrate with the advanced estimation system Sage Timberline, but its integration ability is weak. Because Timberline's capabilities are in takeoff and most of the estimators reside on Timberline, Planswift does not add large numbers of other Timberline items or disposable items to the estimator. These items need to be added to the assembly at any time during the flight plan at Timberline. Interview screen and in the measurement phase. Planswift does allow the removal of items generated by the assembly and adjustment of the number of assembly items on different screens. Again, in order to perform all this, you are forced to jump to different screens. Since the project conditions are always unique, assembly is not perfect in any estimation system. Therefore, it is very important to add items to the assembly. The increase in the number of projects and associated quantities is an absolute requirement that any estimator must normally do during the takeoff measurement and estimation phase; some work on Planwift and Timberline Estimating is in progress. Planwift can indeed send measurement results directly to Timberline estimation projects and assemblies, and in Timberline's estimation, just as you would with an old digitizer measurement board. Planwift training, support, and maintenance Extra . On-Screen takes off via the On Center software. Planwift charges annual maintenance and support fees for each license (mandatory) . End users spend more every year, especially if the customer has multiple licenses.
On Center's screen take-off is the big dad of the software take-off product, because it has existed for the longest time. On Center recognizes that screen takeoff is primarily a measurement procedure. This is why they have a separate estimating program called QuickBid for those who want to estimate the program. On Center will not try to induce you to think this is an estimation system. During the takeoff of the screen, you can also decide what graphics you are drawing and then perform planned measurements. However, before you start, you can load a main set style, something you usually take off or measure from your own library. This process does not seem to be as complicated as Planwift. Screen takeoff does allow you to add a takeoff project at any time by naming the takeoff project and then taking off; a somewhat manual and slow process. The program does have many features, mainly focusing on simple measurements and advanced measurement issues, all of which focus on the details of the easy navigation process. On Center has done a very good job in this area. However, the Excel spreadsheet project that you may use for estimation and/or proposal seems to be out of touch with the idea. Integration with Microsoft Excel is not a dynamic real-time link, more like what I later thought. Yes, you can create links to named styles of cells or ranges in Excel, which is a bit rigid. But you have to ask your own question, and it often happens that when you take off and the Excel spreadsheet needs to add events in flight, what would you do? Again, you will have to manually associate with Excel, which is another major slowdown. You must manually save the takeoff measurement number in Excel and save the takeoff image on the screen or anywhere you decide, but the takeoff image will not be saved in Excel where the takeoff quantity is located. This happens when the takeoff plan is a stand-alone plan. On Center's screen takes off the best integration with the most widely used estimation system in the United States: Sage Timberline Estimating. It basically mimics the same interviewing process as using an old digitizer measurement board. By using the Timberline directly, on-screen take-off allows the estimator to perform the takeoff of the Timberline variable problem, and immediately return the variables of the Timberline program's takeoff volume. With this process, on-screen take-off allows the estimator to continue his/her Timberline interviewing process in the Sage Timberline estimate by looking at the number of massages generated or by adding items at Timberline as an item the estimator deems appropriate. This workflow can completely control the estimator and do On Center work. Training, support and maintenance is an extra screen off . On-Screen takes off via the On Center software, and each license of Planswift (mandatory) charges annual maintenance and support costs and costs the end user more every year, especially if the customer has multiple license.
If your estimating system or proposal generator is Microsoft Excel only . Electronic Plan Takeoff Software is a plug-in for Excel . You can start making spreadsheets, perform measurement takeoffs, and even add more items at any time during the measurement phase of an electronic planning takeoff plan. When you're done, they will automatically appear in the Excel spreadsheet even if you add items instantly. Excel is the control of everything. Your project is started in Excel, taken off and saved in Excel, estimates or suggestions can be generated in Excel; a program, a place. Many takeoff programs interface with Excel in some way, but only the electronic plan to take off and link to Excel in real time means that all Excel spreadsheet descriptions are displayed in the measurement takeoff program, so you always know where you are in Excel. This is a huge difference compared to Planswift and screen take-off. You can even change the description of the takeoff project during takeoff of the electronic plan, and it will automatically change in your Excel spreadsheet. When you talk about estimating and taking off, you must keep the process clean and simple. This process is what you do. This plan will not be lost. Like the other evaluation procedures above, the program's central focus is takeoff measurements, and it did a GREAT job there. Navigation in the program is very simple and easy. It does not apply to other estimation systems, but there is a version that sends measurement results directly to any Microsoft Windows program waiting for keyboard input, just like using a digitizer measurement board. There is also a version that can be used with the digitizer. If you are using Microsoft Excel to make an estimate, or to take off or propose, then this Excel Electronic Plan Takeoff Plan will be your best option. The electronic plan to take off compared to Planwift or screen takeoff, integration with Excel is unparalleled . The difference in e-planning take-off is that training, support, and maintenance contain purchases, while training, support, and maintenance are additional supplements to plan replacement and screen take-off. In addition, the annual support and maintenance costs for the electronic plan to take off for the second year and beyond are lower per company per year rather than per license fee. On-Screen takes off via the On Center software, and each license of Planswift (mandatory) charges annual maintenance and support costs and costs the end user more every year, especially if the customer has multiple license.
