This credit was marked as Not Pursuing so Reporting Fields will not be displayed.

Life Cycle Cost Analysis, it is often referred to in the Purchasing world as Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and refers to all the cost involved with the purchase (from cradle to grave) which may include such things as extracting and processing raw materials, manufacturing, transportation, distribution, maintenance, recycling, and final disposal. We do employ this conditionally depending on the size of the project. This is looked at more frequently in capital construction projects which are done at a state level, but can also effect Facilities Management projects/operations as well.
