Life Cycle Cost Analysis (LCCA) is an economic evaluation in which all of the costs involved in
asset ownership including procurement, construction, operation, maintenance, and eventually
disposal are considered to support decision-making. LCCA is particularly useful in the
evaluation of the total cost of ownership between competing alternatives. The objective of this
course is for each participant to gain an understanding of the terminology, elements, process
steps, calculations, and evaluations involved in performing life cycle cost analysis.

Content:  Intermediate

Key Learning Objectives

Develop an understanding of Life Cycle Cost Analysis, and position the participants to be
better prepared to support their organizations in improving project decision making based on
the evaluation of value across the asset life cycle.

Knowledge Areas
Asset Management, Objectives of Life Cycle Analysis, Life Cycle Cost Methodology, Value-
Based Decision Making, Total Cost Management
