FORMULATOR: Project Quantity Estimator SoftwareENSOFT FORMULATOR, has a unique approach in calculating various aspects of the project.
BUILD-QUANT: Building Quantity Estimation from CAD DrawingsBUILD-QUANT software reads CAD based Architectural Plan and RCC Plan Drawings directly to work out the quantities. Dimensions of beams, slabs, walls are read from the drawings. RCC Design schedules of beams, slabs, columns and footings are read to get the sizes and reinforcement bar details. Lengths of bars are calculated by program itself. It generates Quantities of Concrete, Formwork, Reinforcement Steel, Brickwork, Plaster, Flooring, and Door/ Windows.
Program generates Abstract of Quantities, Cost Estimates, Floor-wise Quantity break-up as well. Database storage of quantities at back-end gives the connectivity with other ERP / Rate-Analysis packages to give Material Takeoff.
Many a times the dimensions taken at site and written in the measurement sheet for working out quantities, are not crosschecked. Since this software is reading the working drawings directly, it is very useful in checking the bill of quantities at office level. The software is a handy tool for quick estimation of quantities for tender works and also for the detail checking of contractor's bills.
BAR-BE-QUE: Bar Bending Schedule & Quantity Estimation of Reinforcement SteelProgram has 3 options for preparing Bar Bending Schedules (BBS). Data for each bar can be entered manually with the first option. BBS is generated with graphical sketch of each bar. If Reinforcement Steel details are available in CAD drawing format, where each bar is shown and drawn to the scale, then BAR-BE-QUE can read this drawing directly to generate BBS. For standard objects, Formulator module can be used to generate BBS data with fewer inputs of object dimensions instead of entering bar dimensions.
Program generates Diameter wise break up of Reinforcement Quantities, with the bar cut length summary. User can select the method for calculating deduction in bar lengths, as per Indian Standard code IS 2502 or British Standard code BS 8666 or as per site practices.
Main feature of BarBeQue is that it is complete stand-alone software. User does not need any other CAD package for generating to-the-scale sketches of every bar. BarBeQue also has a module for generating optimized bar cutting arrangements from purchased bar lengths to minimize wastage at site.
