Il metodo
The database

Thanks to continual research aimed at the development of methodology and services with a high innovative content, S.C.I. manages the entire process of study and research of work orders using its A.P.M. (Analytical Pricing Method)® model. This methodology guarantees timely evaluations on construction and restructuring costs with a detailed analysis of prices through market research on supplies and types of products, simulating the real effect in worksites, and calculating the incidence of labour costs, transport, rental, safety costs, general costs and profit.
A.P.M.® is a scientific model strongly focused on the market. By using the S.C.I. S.r.l. data base [Procurement 6.0], the model is capable of managing very complex work orders according to the type of construction and works being carried out, as well as finding out market prices.

The osmosis between the S.C.I. information systems platforms ensures evaluations and construction cost estimates that are in line with real operating costs and their “worksite application”.
A.P.M.® is a tested and certified scientific model.

The attentive research activity regarding goods and suppliers, and the study of complex and similar works orders, have generated a virtuous process of information and indispensable data which has become S.C.I.'s outstanding tool in supporting works operations.
A focus on correct, complex, up to date and increasingly detailed Data Base development is one of the success factors of the company. The choice of valorising and enhancing the reference database is strategic and indispensable, so much so that it makes the S.C.I. Data Base the first of its kind organised according to recorded, current and negotiated National values.
It is divided into categories per geographical area, product technical specifications, quantity and type of supply. The Data Base ensures the correspondence of prices on National goods, as well as a quick and punctual capability to produce studies and evaluations.

The S.C.I. Data Base is structured inside a software called Procurement 6.0 which is the operating centre of all the types of services provided by S.C.I.
The data stored over time has generated circa 500.000 codified Suppliers, to which 35 million prices are related; this large amount of suppliers and prices is periodically (every 21 days) monitored and updated.
The updating of data is the result of a complex virtual system which covers the utilization of goods and every single item has its own usage level depending on the number of times the data is used for works research activities. The dynamism and oscillations of the market means that the prices are highly volatile and sensitive data, thereby requiring continual updating.

Supplier monitoring activities are carried out at the same time as codifying articles, and this is carried out with system verification of supply capacity and/or prices related to capacity and price levels.
For this purpose we have specifically trained personnel whose task is the management of suppliers and an increase in the level of information regarding the same, so as to improve data base performance and applications of the database.

S.C.I. has achieved Sincert ISO 9001 certification from Bureau Veritas for the development and provision of services to companies for Estimates and supply by third parties.
The certification covers the “development and implementation of services for enterprise regarding estimates and procurement, data processing, research, control and monitoring of prices related to the supply of goods and services in public and private works sectors and local Entities, pursuant the A.P.M. (Analytical Pricing Method)®, and real estate evaluation activities”.
S.C.I. operates in accordance with quality parameters that are strictly related to the internal production process of the service, with continual verification steps during the entire work phase. Certification of the A.P.M.® model is recognition of International validity and its application in all cost evaluation sectors in the construction industry.
