Assemble also allows you to automate the model-based estimating process using your own customized CSI coding system. Automated Estimating in Assemble is very easy as illustrated in the steps below.
- Upload your customized CSI coding scheme with unit price data to Assemble
- Select the item(s) in the data grid
- Apply a CSI code to your selection
- Assemble will automatically associate the appropriate unit cost to your CSI code and generate a total cost estimation to your selection
With a sufficiently-detailed coding scheme there is no limit to the level of sophistication you can apply to your model-based estimates with Assemble.
