Automated Cost Data Base (ACDB)

Last Updated : 03/24/2017

​ACDB is part of the suite of Automated Cost Estimating Integrated Tools (ACEIT). ACDB is a source of commodity based cost, technical and performance data. Commodities include communications/electronics, rotary wing aircraft, missiles and munitions, wheeled and track vehicles. ACDB provides the unique capability to enter, search, and retrieve standardized cost, schedule, technical, and programmatic data with easy interface with the ACEIT Cost Analysis Statistic Package (CO$TAT) or Excel. ACDB includes powerful Database Administrator (DBA) tools to allow the database framework to be easily customized to meet the specific requirements of the site, without expert knowledge of database programming. The Database Entry (DBE) tools automate the process of loading raw data; mapping and normalizing cost data into standard WBS. The Search and Retrieval module is user-friendly facilitating data access, data exporting and report generation.
