Abstract
A literature review was conducted on commonly used engineering cost analysis tools to identify one that is suitable for conducting through-life cost analysis studies on marine system materials. The report will comment on how cost analysis can and has been used in performance based procurement specifications and make recommendations on the most appropriate method for developing performance based specifications for marine systems which incorporate through life cost models. This work required two main streams of investigation; the first to identify the cost model best suited for comparing life cycle costs of marine systems constructed from different materials, and the second to review Performance Based Specifications and Contracting methodologies and recommend how the life cycle cost model could be used to support them. No costing tools specific to marine systems were found, however a generic software package was identified and recommended to conduct costing analysis and to build a cost estimating model. A way forward was proposed to develop a cost analysis tool to support marine system material selection.
