Capital Project Planning & Allocations

Super Contributor
Deloitte’s Capital Projects Planning & Allocations app enables corporate finance, operations, and strategy teams to assess the viability of potential projects as well as track the performance of ongoing initiatives. The tool is extremely user friendly and flexible allowing for the platform to be easily adopted in to any organization. Designed for rapid time to value, the tool can be integrated to source systems such as a general ledger (i.e. SAP or Oracle) or a CRM (i.e. Salesforce, MS Dynamics). Originally envisioned for an aerospace use case, the app uses historical production data to create benchmarks and projections for accurately predicting revenue and costs associated with a given project. The allocation engine incorporates both driver based logic and user defined inputs to accurately distribute cost to a related project. Ultimately, the ability to quickly view key project metrics and P&Ls gives users streamlined decision making capabilities and an array of scenario comparisons for fully transparent project planning.

 

Features

Project Planning
  • Projects can be added by project type (Capex, Overhead, SaaS) to make it easier to compare similar initiatives and more accurately configure operating assumptions

  • This portal allows corporate finance & accounting teams to better predict cash flows associated with new projects and create revenue forecasts for key stakeholders
Revenue Attribution

Operating Expense Forecasting & Allocations
  • Plan operating expenses by category or down to the GL Account level and allocate final budgets from cost centers to profit centers to assess company profitability
  • The app utilizes Anaplan’s break back and flexible time scales; enabling end users to plan quickly and adjust plans as needed to accomplish targets or goals
Project KPIs/Executive Reporting
  • The application calculates IRR, ROIC, NPV, ROI, and Payback Period for each project and compares each metric across multiple scenarios to aid decision making
  • Users have the ability to view the data in both tabular and visualized form over time to assess the success or decline of a given project
Cash Constraint Planning
  • Users can setup balance thresholds, conversion rates, and apply assumed growth to create benchmarks that align with organizational requirements
  • The tool automatically brings in project cash flows (+/-) and evaluates if there are necessary funds to support all the requested initiatives for any given time period
Ranking/Prioritization
  • Rank, filter, and sort by different criteria for prioritization of projects (i.e. Top Projects by NPV or Top Projects by IRR or Top Projects by Cumulative NOI)
  • Assess effects to the rankings based on market factors, internal constraints, and any other obstructions with the ability to toggle 50+ drivers/assumptions
