APPLICATION OF THE COST MODEL TECHNIQUE TO PROJECT MANAGEMENT

A computer technique for financial control is described which is based on assembly and observation of a representation of the cost significant factors. The Project Cost Model (PCM) is assembled from data defining the quantities of work in the project, the unit costs of the plant, labor and materials, the outputs of the resources to be applied and any limitations upon the sequence and timing of work. The PCM may be used to compile an estimate or tender for a project, to monitor costs and progress, to support, or to analyse a project for contractual purposes or for estimating/design feedback. Details are given of the mechanics of using PCM and the computation process involved.
