Life Cycle Costing

Life Cycle Costing adds all the costs of alternatives over their life period and enables an evaluation on a common basis for the period of interest (usually using discounted costs.)

Life Cycle Costing is the total cost throughout its life including planning, design, acquisition and support costs and any other costs directly attributable to owning or using the asset.
