HOUSTON (May 4, 2009) -- Turnaround and capital project teams from five major oil and petrochemical companies have licensed Management Controls, Inc. newest software product, PCF (Project Cost Forecasting).

This success is a testament to the industry's significant project risks and to the earlier success of PCMS, developed by The Turnaround Management Company (TTMC). Management Controls acquired PCMS in 2008 and has invested heavily in technological and functionality upgrades. PCF upgrades and enhancements will continue as Management Controls receives recommendations from the rapidly growing user community. PCF is hosted at a secure data center in the U.S which cuts project implementation time to a matter of weeks, and customers can realize benefits from the installation almost immediately.

PCF is a complete project cost visibility and total project cost forecasting tool. Management Controls has found that PCF yields the highest quality results when managed by a fully knowledgeable cost control team and recommends the use of industry consultants like TTMC. The combination of PCF, Track, and a knowledgeable cost control team yields an accurate project cost estimate and greater analytical capability to see the impact of decisions project management teams are asked to make every day.
