Project cost optimization
Финансовый анализ аудит ИТ

With proper planning of the budget for the future IT solution, all possible costs for pre-project preparation, design, supply of materials and equipment, installation and commissioning, as well as the cost of future ownership of the selected solution are estimated.

“But what if the estimated cost of the project exceeds obvious financial capabilities?” – In this case, the Customer is inclined to reduce the cost of the project by “cutting” it by reducing the engineering part.

Savings due to the design phase of a complex of engineering systems and communications is the most common mistake and one of the most serious of all possible.

As a rule, the process of implementing an engineering systems project can be divided into work groups:

  • «Fundamental»: determine the limit of the possible expansion and build-up of the functionality of the entire solution in the future: pre-design studies (identification of needs, formation of technical specifications), design, laying of communications, control and measuring work, supervision.
  • «Secondary»: gradually fill the area defined by the “mandatory” group of stages: determining the equipment necessary at the moment, its installation and commissioning, and, as necessary, flexible scaling of the engineering systems complex.

The problem of forming an acceptable budget can be solved without “impoverishment» of the project in the engineering field – by determining the minimum required number of fundamental works that lay the foundation for a future solution.

«Mandatory» stages
  • Formulation of enlarged tasks for the complex of all engineering systems.
  • Detailing the formulated enlarged tasks to the specific premises of the building and territory.
  • Development of a list of prospective needs and possible changes in the implementation of development plans for the facility.
  • Development of technical specifications (TOR) for the design of systems, taking into account future needs.
  • Engineering systems design.
  • Project implementation: laying of communications and preparation of installation sites for active equipment.
  • Project supervision: work on quality control of communications being laid.
«Optional-minor» stages
  • Determination of the minimum necessary and sufficient set of equipment at the time of commissioning.
  • Installation of the necessary set of equipment.
  • Commissioning works. Testing a solution with installed equipment, for compliance with its tasks.
  • Experienced (pilot) operation of the solution.
  • Operational operation of the solution.

In the pursuit of rational and efficient use of funds, it is necessary to assign the highest priority to an integrated project of engineering systems, while further implementation of the “secondary” stages can be carried out “by installments”, as financial opportunities arise.

SOLTI specialists are ready to assist in financial management, optimizing solutions for the customer’s feasible budget.
Optimization of the approach to design and implementation, that is, competent accounting of financial costs in budgeting, is a matter of the experience of specialists from the development team and implementers.
