This paper describes the operation of the Highway Construction Inspection Management Program (HCIMP). HCIMP is a microcomputer based data base management program which enables engineers to store, maintain, and update the quantities and progress of each contract pay item which has been incorporated into the construction project over the contract period. The user can retrieve or review desired information easily and quickly. In addition, the program can generate a daily inspector report summary, cumulative contract item summary, costs overrun summary, costs underrun summary, and monthly summary expeditiously and effortlessly.
