Inexpensive PC hardware and easy to use software packages have provided the construction industry with cost competitive and powerful data control capabilities. The introduction of PC based systems in an existing company structure, however, is not accomplished without some complications and measurable impact. We study these impacts and attempt to provide some solutions for the engineering manager to better manage the change before, during, and after the implementation of a PC based computer costing system. This study was provided by actual data obtained from McDermott Construction Company of Indonesia. Other reference materials were obtained from trade journals articles dealing with the various types of impacts that can be expected during change of this type.
