Program Affordability Management

Program Affordability Management provides tools and processes to study, analyze, predict and select cost elements and approaches affecting program costs and schedules. KSJ’s Program Affordability Management approach helps to minimize program cost and risk, accelerates project processes, and improves the effectiveness and efficiency of project selection, control, and delivery.

– Credible and Dependable Cost Estimates

  • Clear Visibility of Scope Changes and Cost Impacts
  • Measures and Metrics Relevant from Beginning to End

– Economic (Cost/Benefit) Analysis including:

  • Cost Databases and Forecasting Models
  • Hardware/Software Lease versus Buy Analysis
  • Analysis of Alternatives (AoA)
  • Life Cycle Cost Estimate (LCCE)
  • Life Cycle Benefit Estimate (LCBE)
  • Return on Investment (ROI)
  • Cost Sensitivity and Risk Analysis
  • Present Value Analysis/ Payback
  • Risk Assessment/Management
  • Statistical Models

– Parametric Cost Modeling & Estimating

  • Rapid and accurate resource and time estimates based on selected parameters of function, performance and environment. Critical to Cost as an Independent Variable (CAIV) Analysis and credible budget requirements.

– Program Schedule and Resource Analysis

  • Structured foundations of the activities, sequences, priorities, resources and interacting timelines throughout complex programs
