Subcontractors are frequently involved in quotation processes and the main objective of this work is to provide an integrated system foundation for quotation preparation that enables detailed analyses of product, process, and cost information. The technology, models and principles for successful system realization are described and a case example illustrating system functionality and utilization introduced. The system foundation enables flexible access to stored information supporting analyses across orders and product variants as well as on a more detailed level for individual product items.
