For a project to stay on schedule and within budget, data gathering, management and analytical processes are required.

To support and enhance the services that rhi provides, our strong understanding of project controls can be applied to help predict, rationalise and constructively influence the time and cost outcomes of a project.

rhi aims to support the project throughout the asset life cycle: from outlining scope to a realistic expectation, monitoring the status of the scope and to closing out the project. rhi will provide a strong focus on analysing and evaluating all the elements involved and assessing how they will affect the project delivery.

Benefits:

  • Audit and review of project cost plans
  • Project cost control and reporting
  • Value engineering facilitation
  • Cost risk analysis
  • Data consolidation
  • Change control
  • System integration

RHiPEMS

RHiPEMS is a project orientated cost control and reporting system that includes performance measurement, status analysis and cost reporting at practical summary levels, and can be used as an aid to forecast future cost performance.

RHiPEMS provides a consolidated source of data, a consistent authority of project cost terminology and is seen as complementary to financial systems.  With its multiple currency reporting, RHiPEMS delivers the necessary detail and flexibility suitable for engineering and construction project managers. By comparing actual costs against budgets, forecasts and commitments; the ongoing performance of the project can be monitored.

By interfacing with ERP systems, RHiPEMS can gather all data necessary for monthly project reporting, providing cost engineers with a single, robust, secure database under their control. Due to client concerns about security of their data, RHiPEMS does not directly access client systems in order to gain information, where it collects preformatted file downloads and presents the data back in an integrated, hierarchical set of dashboard reports. A wide range of reporting requirements can be met by built in reports, and the customisable data views give many other sorting and selection options.

rhi offers full consultancy and support to assist with implementation on projects, which can be offered as part of a rhi managed service.

Benefits:

  • Cost tracking
  • Budget management
  • Cost forecasting
  • Project cost control
  • Cost reporter

Planning and Scheduling

When time is important, our solutions prioritise the information driving your projects.

Building on our extensive estimating capabilities, we transfer our detailed knowledge of the project workscope to create robust plans in the early stages of development. These plans are linked to man-hour and cost estimates to create resource constrained execution schedules and expenditure phasings.

Our linkage between cost/man-hour estimates, activity plans and schedules through our planning software enable us to build a clearer definition earlier in the project life cycle, reducing uncertainty, improving confidence in completion dates and supporting project management.

Benefits:

  • Improves scope definition and understanding
  • Supports earlier decision-making
  • Increases certainty
  • Informs decision
  • Improved resource management
  • Comprehensive schedule for overall scope
