While PRICE® Systems has honed its expertise in cost-effective estimating through demanding applications such as aerospace, defense, and security, PRICE solutions have been proven for the smallest components to the largest systems, across a broad range of industries. That includes cost estimating software solutions tailored to systems, systems-of-systems, hardware and hardware life cycle, and software cost estimation.
Whether the application is a NASA spacecraft, or an IT hardware and software installation to support domestic government agencies, PRICE has the experience to help. Beyond the initial value of more credible and efficient estimating, PRICE also helps to facilitate communications between the government and contractors by providing a common frame of reference for both parties working in the PRICE® TruePlanning® framework. Not only does this accomplish a common language for estimation, but also makes common-format reporting a breeze thanks to tight integration with programs such as ACE-IT. Equally important, PRICE provides a broad range of Program Affordability services to deliver better value for taxpayers.
PRICE estimating solutions have proven their value across a variety of aeronautic applications—commercial jetliners and both helicopter and fixed-wing aircraft. Hardware cost models refined through thousands of aeronautic projects over the past 40 years provide the ability to break complex designs down into individual subsystems and offer Analysis of Alternatives to keep project costs competitive.

PRICE Systems experience spans cost estimating software and cost management programs for a cross-section of DoD programs involving ground equipment, sea-going vessels, and a variety of military aircraft to high-level programs for Homeland Security. Having worked with most DoD sectors, and knowing the needs of the major defense contractors, PRICE is positioned to help clients in both sectors minimize cost overrun surprises and to avoid potential cancellation of programs that are deemed too costly to complete.
PRICE solutions are not limited to Aerospace and Defense-focused ground vehicles; they have found success in the commercial automotive sector as well. PRICE analysts and PRICE tools have been instrumental in helping leaders in the automotive industry make better decisions. PRICE solutions have made it possible for these leaders to optimize the value they get from their own data, while enabling estimation from the earliest concepts of new vehicle models. PRICE’s ability to estimate a system comprehensively, including software and hardware, makes it an ideal resource to support design and manufacturing decisions necessary to optimize cost savings and value.
Although PRICE Systems has experience with some of the world's largest manufactured equipment, targeted cost models for IT systems—including network servers, workstations, help desk support, application development, training and more—provide the same credibility for cost-efficient estimating and cost management in a range of IT environments. Equally impressive, PRICE personnel are some of the most experienced in the world when it comes to cost estimating software and cost management for the most complex software projects.
The relevance of PRICE® Cost Models, cost estimating software, and disciplines is not limited to just a few industries. Over the past four decades, PRICE estimating expertise has been applied to projects ranging from electronic record-keeping to emergency response systems to financial services and instrumentation to energy plant de-commissioning.
