Construction Project

Creating a demo for a construction project is not an easy task. Construction projects in most cases are complicated including a lot of different scopes to complete and thousands of problems that need to be solved.

No matter the size of the construction project the need to control it is necessary. Tons of data are around and a procedure needs to be followed. The center of all this is a cost control procedure and this is what comes next on this post.

Cost Control Procedure

In general, cost control is the procedure to identify and reduce business expenses to increase profits. Cost control starts with the budgeting process. In a construction project, the cost control department needs to be there and follow a cost control procedure. The task for the cost control department and for management of the project is to compare the project’s actual financial results with the budgeted expectations. If actual costs are higher than planned, management has the information it needs to take action.

Rabio can be the center of data gathering for cost control in a construction project.

Construction Project Demo

The demo project in Rabio is based on a hypothetical bridge construction project.

The scope of the demo project is the construction of a bridge with 2 separate lanes (north and south) including earthworks, roadworks, and MSS parking areas as direct works.
The duration of the project is 18 months starting from January 2016 until June 2017.

Cost Control Structure is created based on Cost Centers (CC) and Cost Type Keys (CTK) following a typical Cost Breakdown Structure (CBS).
