This powerful tool will help you improve the consistency, speed, accuracy, and detail of your estimates. The manual method of weight extensions, material pricing, labor computations, and totaling are forever eliminated. Accurate weight units, cost units, subtotals, and grand totals are at your fingertips.
ROMAC Estimating is a multi-user application and can be installed on a standalone computer, as a single-user application on a computer attached to a network, or it can be installed on several computers attached to a Windows network.
Operating System - Windows XP Home & Professional, 7, 8.1 or 10
System Memory - The programs should run on systems with the minimum amount of memory recommended for the operating system but at least 32 meg of memory. If you think your system may have a marginal amount of memory in which to run the program, try running the program with the marginal memory then buy additional memory only if necessary.
Hard Drive Space - Varies from a few hundred meg. If you have been using our Series 5.3 system, data storage space will probably be 3-4 times as much as required for Series 5.3 data.
Network - Windows peer to peer (optional)
Steel fabricating industry standard nomenclature, single key entry of fractions, menu driven commands, and on screen prompts combine to simplify data entry.
Estimating allows you to easily import bill of material data from Tekla, SDS/2, Autodesk's Advance Steel, P2 Programs, Softscan and any program that can create KISS files.
The program allows you to enter up to 24 different material cost tables. This allows you to price an estimate based on the most likely source the material would be purchased. Nesting of length items can be easily utilized - no more guessing on scrap factors for a job. Also, a price table that is specific to an individual estimate can be set up.
Surface area is calculated for applicable items. Surface area can be broken down by finish such as galvanized, painted, etc.
A database of standard and specialty materials normally encountered on steel projects is maintained. This database can be updated by the user to include items unique to their operation.
Shop labor can be manually entered for each bill of material item or labor codes can be used to calculate labor from labor units stored in a customizable labor table.
