July/August Issue: PRICE customers produce more competitive bids and proposals

PRICE shares expertise in Cost Estimating and Affordability Management
at 2014 ICEAA Development and Training Workshop


As the Gold Sponsor of this year's ICEAA Development and Training Workshop, held in Denver on June 10-13, PRICE Systems' 40 years of cost estimating expertise was clearly evident in seminars, workshops, the exhibit area and private meetings with key decision-makers.

A contingent of PRICE thought leaders led by Chief Scientist Arlene Minkiewicz and Senior Solutions Architect for Army Programs Bob Koury shared their knowledge with attendees on a broad range of topics (see table). Bob, who was already slated to deliver his own presentation on affordability engineering, performed triple duty by filling in for two other PRICE presenters called away after a major contract for PRICE® Systems' new TruePlanning® Space Mission Models changed their schedules.

The workshop included a full eight hours for attendees to visit the PRICE exhibit for demonstrations of TruePlanning® 2014. With enhancements such as TrueFindings®, TrueMapper® and new cost models for fast, accurate cost estimating and ongoing affordability management, TruePlanning® 2014 continues to define industry standards for system proposals that can be accurately "priced to win" for both contractors and their customers.  Attendees visiting the PRICE exhibit were invited to participate in a raffle for a 42" TV, which was won by Charles V. Hopkins, a founding member of ISPA, and a 2002 Frank Freiman Award Winner.

Among exhibit visitors, the PRICE team was pleased to welcome Greg Kiviat, the ICEAA's 2014 Parametrician of the Year. A long-time PRICE user, Greg is Affordability Analysis Manager at Sikorsky Aircraft and a fellow thought leader at many ICEAA events.

PRICE also reserved a room outside of the exhibit hall for private meetings and one-on-one consulting with individuals and small groups. "This year's ICEAA workshop was a huge success," said PRICE Systems President Anthony DeMarco. "Our team got to update attendees on what we're doing and where we're headed with our TruePlanning® technology, and on how some of our marquee customers are leveraging TruePlanning® for quantifiable operational and business advantages."

The PRICE exhibit and a private room outside of the exhibit hall gave attendees ample opportunity to meet with PRICE experts.
