Trns•port Estimator is an interactive, PC-based, stand-alone cost estimation system for transportation construction that provides a graphical user interface for the preparation of detailed estimates.

Estimator ImageEstimator supports generation of cost estimates using cost-based and bid-based techniques.

All base data for these estimates, such as wages, equipment and material costs, production rates, and historical item price estimation data is stored and maintained on the PC. Estimator can import bid-based item price estimation data from BAMS/DSS and supports multiple bid histories from which the user can choose. Estimator can transfer data to the Trns•port CES module for further refinement of estimates and for integration of project estimates into program estimates. Estimator is well-suited for distributing the estimation function throughout district offices and for exchanging data with design consulting firms. Estimator is integrated with the other Trns•port modules, and supports additional file formats, such as XML and HTML.
