The Life-Cycle Cost Analysis Process

Design
Various alternative construction designs can be considered. The costs associated with engineering and administration costs can be estimated as a percentage of the pay items used.
Maintenance

Construction
Construction includes all upfront, initial capital costs of the agency. Costs for maintenance of traffic is also be included.
Use
The use of the infrastructure consists main of costs to the user (e.g., vehicle operating costs for roadways).
Rehabilitation
The infrastructure will need to be rehabilitated periodically through its lifespan to restore functionality. The frequency and type can vary.
Salvage Value
If the infrastructure remains at the end-of-life, it will be credited a salvage value depending on its expected remaining life.
