    OPEX -ABEX-DECAB – COST DATABASE

    CLOUD DEDICATED COST DATABASE FOR COST ESTIMATING TEAMS

    CAF-CAPEX DATABASE is a structured and comprehensive knowledge base designed to Cost Estimating professionals, the estimators can choose from parametric equipment models to detailed unit-rate data for all typical project disciplines, which include other parameters like Installation Mhrs and weights.

    With the central database architecture of CAF-CORPORATION, client knowledge remains secure and available when they need it, and options for customized databases are available as per client request.

    The CAF-CAPEX DATABASE information has been previously benchmarked with other third parties Databases, for example, some well-known datasets such as Compass International, Richardson and Page & Nations. In that benchmarking process, CAF-CORPORATION has applied the International statistic standards to obtain trusted data based on regression analysis methodology which include the feature to be real time updated using an owned Cost Index Database (CAF-COST INDEX DATABASE).

    Data on the cost of operation (OPEX) of process plants compared to the components (CAPEX) of the cost estimate are scarcer, mainly because it is a more complex cost and depends on the specific site, process or company.  Abandonment costs or Abandonment expenditure (ABEX) are costs associated with the abandonment of a business venture. This database does not attempt to measure or describe the technical or performance characteristics of specific models made by specific manufacturers. Instead, It shows hourly costs that are derived from average cost factors applied to a machine’s most recent list price. Whereas a manufacturer may rightly claim the advantages of Its products, this database should not be used to substantiate such claims.

    We’re ready to transform the way you Estimate your Project.

    When we say all in one, we certainly strive that all the tools that a Cost Estimating Professional needs are integrated. The growth process of the Databases and Tools is done in accordance with the requirements of the users.
    You can find the databases, tools and techniques to Estimate your Project, or we can tailor it to suit your needs.
    These Databases were designed with the objective of providing information necessary to carry out cost estimates for Industrial Projects, based on generic cost curves for several types of equipment families, generated through benchmarking techniques and Multiple Regression Analysis.
    The comparative curves simulate Component Cost as a function of a capacity variable or combination of variables. The cost curves, man hours of installation and other information contained in this application can be used to develop the total cost of capital (CAPEX) of a process plant or any construction infrastructure.

    These databases are time & location adjustable online.

    At your disposal cost index and location factor tools, you can adjust them using “Caf-Cost-Index” and “Caf-Capex Location Factor” online, do not waste time waiting for an updated edition, you will always have the information up to date.
