The objective of the CATLOC course is to introduce the concept of 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:

  • Materials (systems, equipment, items, spare parts…)
  • Stations (stores, workshops, sites of operations…)
  • Tasks (maintenance tasks, PM / CM …)
  • Resources (personnel, maintenance equipment…)
  • Time

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:

  • Evaluate tenders
  • Identify cost drivers
  • Manage data uncertainty


Participants will also learn:

  • How to perform sensitivity analysis in CATLOC for efficient identification of parameters that have a large impact on costs
  • How CATLOC can be used with database information
  • How data can be imported to CATLOC from OPUS10/SIMLOX


The course also covers typical / advanced modelling features in CATLOC such as:

  • Building LCC trees
  • Defining cost functions
  • Efficient data assignment using default rules
  • Handling of costs related to structure of dimensions (materials, station, etc.)


Course Structure

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.

Course Location
Courses are normally held at the William Cecil Hotel in Stamford or the Assembly House in Norwich.
