The LCC tools enable life-cycle costing in a procurement process to get the full picture associated with a product, service or works.

LCC shows that the purchase price is only one of several cost parameters connected to purchasing and owning a product. A life-time cost assessment also includes operating costs, including energy, fuel or water usage, maintenance and disposal costs. An LCC calculation may also include the cost of externalities, such as greenhouse gas emissions.

The following MS Excel-based calculators are available:
