Example Recipe strategies based on project phase in ALICE Pro

Project Phase

Recipes

Cost

Resources

Tender / Bid in early design

Fixed Durations or Parametric Level 2 (based on cycle times and/or production rate of material installed (SF/CY)

Index cost for labor & equipment 

Can assign critical resources by scope or system to understand start and end dates (may not get true optimization of crews). Note: if don't assign a resource ALICE defaults to 24/7 calendar (apply calendar override). 

Tender / Bid in advanced design

Fixed Durations or Parametric Level 2 (based on cycle times and/or production rate of material installed (SF/CY)

Conceptual budget by system 

Can assign by crew types (if self-perform) or systems 

Preconstruction

Fixed Durations or Parametric Level 3 (based on quantities and crew hours)

Target budget break out by cost of material, labor, and equipment (index cost okay)

All crews and equipment

Buyout 

Fixed Durations or Parametric Level 3-4 (based on quantities and crew hours)

Target budget, break out by cost of material, labor, and equipment (index cost okay)

All crews, equipment, and materials

Construction

Fixed Durations or Parametric Level 3-4 (based on quantities and workforce hours)

Target budget vs. actuals break out by cost of material, labor, and equipment (index cost okay)

Critical equipment, materials, self-perform crews if any (recommended)
