The objective of the CATLOC course is to introduce the concept of Whole Life Cost modelling and the use of CATLOC to build and maintain flexible Cost models. CATLOC makes it possible to analyse all costs freely in a number of dimensions.
Common dimensions of interest include:
Any combination of cost dimensions can easily be studied and analysed in CATLOC.
CATLOC can also be used for modelling revenues, which enables cost/profit analyses.
Course participants will learn to analyse CATLOC results to tackle a number of common situations, for example:
Participants will also learn:
The course also covers typical / advanced modelling features in CATLOC such as:
This course is a workshop of 3 days duration for a maximum of 6 students. It will include manual calculation and extensive hands-on use of CATLOC, to reinforce learning points.
The exercises are intended to challenge students who will work at their own pace aided by the instructor where necessary.
Courses are normally held at the William Cecil Hotel in Stamford or the Assembly House in Norwich.
