Project Title Auto2 BQ (AutomaticTaking-Off & Bill of Quantity)
Project Category Innovation
Abstract AUTO2-BQ (AUTOMATIC TAKING-OFF AND BILL OF QUANTITY) is a numerical model, specifically developed for industrial sectors to simplify the processes of quantifying the construction cost. Taking-Off (TO) is the process of recording all dimensions from construction drawing into a Dimension Paper whereas Bill Of Quantity (BQ) is the list of items giving the quantities and descriptions of works related to the construction with the total cost. The time spent to prepare TO and BQ is usually too long and could cause delay to the start of construction work. The purpose of this model is to combine both TO and BQ processes that are usually done manually and involve a lot of papers into a simple medium that is more productive and efficient. The user will only need to key in all the required information and the quantity and cost of the items will be automatically produced. The price list is also flexible and can be updated. It saves time to be prepared and can be shared easily to all related parties through e-mail. Not only beneficial to the construction industry, this model is also applicable for teaching and learning purposes and can be used worldwide. The usage of AUTO2-BQ in construction will surely help to improve the tedious processes of preparing TO and BQ, and indirectly improve the services provided by the project developer. We believe that this product will have its own commercial value as it gives practical benefits especially to the developers, engineers and contractors in the industry.
