Direct Cost Schedule in Expert Estimation

Pronamics Expert Estimation - General Estimating


The Direct Cost Schedule is a workspace used to create and manage the list of items required to be completed and presented to your client at submission.

Within this window, it is possible to:

  • Build up costs directly associated with the completion of the project
  • Utilise formula or mathematical equations to calculate a quantitive value for an item
  • Set the current state of an item
  • Format the Schedule.

The contextual ribbon menu at the top of the window displays all the functions available to edit and modify the properties of Direct Cost Schedule items.


Check out the Pronamics Knowledge Base. There is an article on every feature in Expert Estimation and Expert Project. These articles are free to access and can be searched and bookmarked for later reference.
