Abstract:

This thesis examined several existing cost estimating data bases. In addition to examining these data bases a survey was taken amoung Air Force Civil Engineering design personnel to determine which estimating system is currently in use and what factors effect the final costs on construction projects. Based on the results of the surveys an estimating program was developed to enable the designer to input local cost data and store the data for future use. With the data base in place the designer is able to create accurate cost estimates in less time for each particular project and have the project data stored under the particular project namecode. The computer programs developed for this thesis were written in BASIC language and compatible with the WANG VS 100 system.
