surveyors due to the essential services they render private and virtually to
everyone as well as the indispensable position they occupy in this age of
travel boon and shelter they cannot be left out in this world of
More so, when one talks of the huge capital that is involved in
the establishment and running of quantity surveying as well as the dynamic
nature of it’s business, one will readily welcome machines such as computer to
This project work is aimed at designing and implementing a bill of
quantity system for quantity surveyors.
In Nigeria especially, the method used by most surveyors firm is
manual, even though the nature and growth of the business has continued to
demand for a better method. This manual method is lade with problems that are
inherent such slow or sluggish nature, loss of paper and inaccuracy in the
Okolo, Okolo & Co. surveying industry.
Further more, this project is aimed at designing software that
will take care of above mentioned lapses and reduce also the number of
employees handling the job there by reducing cost. It will also provide a
better and eligible analysis of Bill of quantity material; as well ensure free
flow of an information form the location (company) to the site.

7.0 CONCLUSION AND RECOMMENDATION
1.1 BACKGROUND OF STUDY
The ultimate goal of any establishment is effectiveness. This is
achieved only when there is a proper co-ordination of activates between the
various units that comprise the system. The co-ordination is even more
important in a surveying system where the desired end is to examine the general
condition of the land before building and construction. Ineffectiveness of a
surveying firm (system) could diminish in its abilities to relief in human
pains and trouble or worse still produce irreversible consequence. Any measures
there for that can improve the need response surveyors management and its
general efficiency is most welcomed, and a computer based system could be of
the almost help.
However, a computer base bill of quantity system for quantity
surveyors which is the topic of this researcher will enable the site engineers,
operative surveyors to determine the accurate land and materials for the
required operative surveyors to determine the accurate land and materials for
the required operation, therefore, saving some precious time in the site.
1.2 STATEMENT OF THE
The regular flood of clients to the surveying industry at the end
of every day to lodge complaints and the subsequent inefficiency of the system
is a regular source of embarrassment to all concerned in the surveying
industry. Moreover, the management (Quantity surveyor site engineers, site
clerks and operatives, etc) have been equally unable to monitor the land and
material for the required operation also to provide a better and eligible
analysis of bill of quantity system of the land on both daily and monthly
bases. This too has become a considerable frustration to all concerned as well
as negated the primary aims of the establishment.
As a result of the above problems, clients become doubtful
about the quality of the job they receive, the surveying industry thereby loses
money and materials, hence it progress is returned.
1.3 PURPOSE OF THE STUDY
The purpose of bill report is to consider the changing environment
of surveying industry and to report to the profession. On the practical steps
which might be taken to ensure that it is able to deal with the increasingly
sophisticated demands which are likely to occur in the changing environment.
1.4 AIMS AND OBJECTIVES
The aim and objectives of this project on the available billing
system are: -
1. To find out if the already existing is
efficient, adequate and sufficient.
2. Highlight the inefficiency in the available
method through which computer application can reduce and eliminate inefficiency.
1.5 SCOPE OF THE STUDY
The report takes into consideration the developments which have
taken place in the last twenty years.
In 1961, the royal institution of chartered surveyors set up a
working up quantities in the constitution industry, this study is narrowed to
the following areas: -
program that will effectively handle client bills.
program that handles name, account, phone numbers and price list.
of the companies clients
of clients can be retrieved and update if necessary.
