Abstract : At many base contracting offices, best bid cost calculations are still being done by hand. The purpose of this project is to determine if computer software (with supporting documentation) can be developed to calculate the best bid cost. The result of these calculations is typically referred to as the life cycle cost (LCC) of the system. This software will be used to procure automated data processing equipment but can be easily adapted to any other contract analysis of life cycle cost. This report documents the creation and use of this life cycle cost spreadsheet template for the Wang VS computer system. Keywords: Manual operation, Computer applications, Cost analysis.
