Project Title Auto2-BQ (AutomaticTaking-Off & Bill of Quantity) v2.1
Project Category Innovation
Abstract AUTO2-BQ (AUTOMATIC TAKING-OFF AND BILL OF QUANTITY) v2 is a numerical model, firstly developed in 2016 and further improved to facilitate teaching and learning activities. Conventionally, Taking-Off (TO) is used to record all dimensions from construction drawing into a Dimension Paper, before producing Bill Of Quantity (BQ), the list of items giving the quantities and descriptions of works related to the construction with the total cost. 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. In class, the time spent to prepare TO and BQ is usually too long and AUTO2-BQ v2 is capable to verify the calculation while enhancing the students understanding on the TO format and steps required in the calculation. The users will only need to key in all the dimensions required for the basic structures (beam, slab, foundation) and the quantity and cost of the items will be automatically produced. The price list for the BQ is also flexible and can be updated accordingly to the materials current market price. It saves time to be prepared and is also beneficial to the construction industry especially when they have trainees. We believe that this product will have its own commercial value as it gives practical benefits especially to the lecturers, students, and even engineers in the industry. This product is also in line with Chapter 3 in syllabus ECM366 under EC110 program in UiTM. Future improvement are expected with collaboration with other faculties in UiTM and with the industries have been planned.
