Abstract:

The project manager is responsible for the cost, schedule and performance of assigned projects. In particular, the cost of a program is under constant scrutiny from the initiation of the program to completion. In order to ascertain the cost effectiveness of a program, a cost estimate must be derived that will act as the cost baseline throughout the program. The initial cost estimate is extremely important because the estimate is used to determine the appropriation of funds necessary to accomplish the project. Inaccurate cost estimates are detrimental to the project and the project managers capability to manage the project effectively. The thesis describes an innovative approach to cost estimating that increases the overall accuracy of a cost estimate while requiring no more manpower than previous methods.
