Costing Management Bristol
Cost planning and cost control are an essential part of your project management process. Your project managers must understand where their costs fall in the project schedule so they can effectively manage demand for crucial project resources.
Creating a resourced optimised schedule is essential for effective cost planning to help your business build up an accurate picture of planned costs over the project length and expected time period.
Your planned costs may either be variable or fixed, depending on the nature of the project. Helping your management team to understand these types of costs and when they will happen is also an important element of ensuring your project runs more smoothly and stays on schedule without any queries or delays coming from uninformed management over costings as they arise.
MW professional project cost control services
Many small and medium-sized businesses can lack the knowledgeable staff needed to effectively control costs on up and coming planned projects. This where MW costing management services can come in very handy!
Cost control is the process of gathering and collating project costs into a format that will allow you to create a project budget and enable you to compare prices to find savings.
Effectively controlling your project costs is a necessary step to keep your expenditure down while delivering a high-quality project on time.
Effective cost control is also necessary to help you keep a record of monetary expenditure for purposes such as:
- Minimising costs where possible
- Revealing areas of cost overspend
Your cost control information will also help you to create a report detailing costs against activities. This information will be useful to help inform future projects that you undertake with a similar format.

Cost breakdown structure
The first step of any project cost management process is drawing up a procurement strategy and the cost breakdown structure. This will define the level at which costs are going to be collected so you can allow your project budget to be set, and costs paid, recorded and effectively managed.
Your cost breakdown structure will highlight both direct costs that are linked to a specific project and indirect costs that may be spread out against many projects. Direct costs may include project resources such as materials, software and hardware. Indirect costs can be things like ongoing office space rental, staff salaries and building maintenance costs.
It is not just the individual resources needed for the project that needs to be factored into your costings, but also your overhead costs for the project including shared services and office use.
