As part of a Department of Energy funded project entitled Information Management for Nuclear Power Stations, a survey of existing cost control systems was conducted. Based on this study, a model for collecting and evaluating cost information using the physical layout or configuration of the plant was developed. This paper presents an overview of some of the systems presently used and introduces the cost structure of the Project Configuration Model (PCM).
