Time-Phased budgeting is critical for cash flow management. Knowing that you have a $70m project is important, but knowing when that $70m is going to be spent really brings it to the next level of project financial planning and cost control. By using real contractual agreements as to when items are planned to be paid for, the project manager is then armed with an accurate timeline that predicts project spend patterns. You can even aggregate many projects together in a Forecast Spend Summary report to gain a month-by-month insight into total project expenditures. 4castplus engineering and construction estimating software is by far the most robust and easy to use system available anywhere.
