In this paper, a prototype package developed within the scope of the Implied Cost Evaluation System (ICES) project at the University of the West of England will be presented. It offers visulaization and analysis features for engineering cost data. These tools permit the cost engineer to browse and locate stages in the manufacturing process where requirements, such as time and cost to manufacture, are not met. Once a problematic entity has been identified, the product or parts of it should be redesigned. Any inappropriate manufacturing processes should be either improved or substituted for a more suitable one. Ease of use and efficient information delivery have been particularly emphasized.
