The COSTER Excel® add-in imports files from COMPRESS or INSPECT and creates user customizable pressure vessel cost estimates in spreadsheet format. COSTER helps fabricators quickly create consistent, accurate quotations. COSTER benefits pressure vessel Owner/Operators by providing Process Engineers with budget prices for new equipment and Maintenance Departments with replacement equipment costs. When used with the COMPRESS Division 2 option, COSTER can help quickly determine if Division 2 is more cost efficient for your application than Division 1 as well.
COSTER organizes equipment into purchased and fabricated components and groups identical pieces into convenient spreadsheet lists. It estimates labor using a cost factor system that can be adjusted to suit a variety of shop fabrication practices. COSTER is included with each current license of COMPRESS or INSPECT at no additional charge.
