Cost management systems must be able to provide substantial information that shall be assistive in a business organization’s plans or decision on what to do next and how to do it.

ECS is another cost management system that is available in the market for business organizations. The system is developed by 3C Software in order to provide additional and supplementary cost management solutions to several issues that arise from cost calculation and analysis. The software was developed because of the frequent changes in the costs of raw materials and the fluctuating prices of commodities in the market. Moreover, along with these uncertainties, productions are usually done overseas in different locations around the globe. In order to calculate and analyze the financial aspect of a business organization with respects to its production rates, Impact:ECS is able to gather all data and necessary information in just a single system. The system operates through real time processing, such that it is able to data from existing reports, as they change, in order to calculate the costs of production. The system is also able to analyze the results of the calculation process, which is important in order for business organizations how the costs build up in the company. After the analysis, the system creates a report through computer software.

Enterprise Cost Management (ECM) is a software application, which is able to analyze a certain product and how it is developed. From the analysis, the software is able to generate the entire cost of production all throughout the p of time it shall be made available. Moreover, the system also keeps a record of estimates of costs in order to also create an estimate of the total production cost that a business organization shall be spending. The system also has a supporting mechanism, WBS, which generates multiple priced scenarios. WBS changes its results depending on the estimates calculated by the ECM. (Cognition Corporation, 2001)
