Tie Cost and Schedule Together with the HD Suite

Build Cost Models

Generate high-level estimates efficiently with HD Solutions, using third-party libraries and your company’s historical project data to help prioritize projects selected.

the HD Suite: Receive Daily Cost Updates

Leverage Daily Earned Value

Evaluate and award work packages to contractors. Manage outside contractors and internal resources throughout the project with forecast-to-completion snapshots. Leverage daily earned value reporting to manage performance and track the cost-spend curve.

Performance Measurement

Evaluate Scope and Changes

Easily develop variations of a plan and “what if” scenarios by altering sequencing and timing of resources, or suspending sub-projects. Produce meaningful comparisons that account for escalation, resources, and schedule revisions.


HD Solutions meets the capital planning and project control needs for power generation, transmission distribution, gas and electricity, solar, wind, water, nuclear, and telecom plus public works.Many power and process companies rely on spreadsheets and multiple non-standardized processes to provide engineering estimates, capital planning estimates, and actual-to-estimated cost outcomes. As a result, they lose the ability to abstract, compare, and selectively reuse data.

HD Solutions for power/process and public works can improve estimating accuracy by up to 100%, reduce response times by up to 50%, and allows time to evaluate a project to consider alternate approaches, consistency, escalation, and varied schedule scenarios. Beyond the individual project, HD Solutions offers a rich, well-developed project portfolio analytics and modeling capability for project planners. It also provides access to productivity and cost-historic data at the task level, important for closed-loop feedback into the planning execution phase.

“HD Solutions is built on modern technology and that makes it extremely easy to use, plus the integration with accounting was exactly what we needed.”
