The Job Cost module is the heart and soul of the eDENEB system as it consolidates the information relevant to each job in progress. Contract amounts and estimates or budgets are entered to provide the baseline for all comparative project analysis. Estimated and actual start dates are maintained by job, sub-job, and phase. Costs are grouped into the categories of labor and six additional user-defined categories. Within each category, cost codes may be defined for subtotaling and reporting. This feature provides easier tracking of different types of labor, material, and subcontractors.
Each job maintains default tax codes, workers compensation codes, and area codes that maximize the efficiency of input functions in other processing modules. All job reporting is available on demand and reflects the real-time job status, current to the last entry made in all linked modules. The job status may be identified as Active, Inactive, History, and Archive to reflect the job cycle. Numerous reports provided in this module reflect the priorities of the managers and estimators to identify costs, margin, progress and profit of the job. Job Cost history is maintained to improve bidding similar jobs in the future.
