The evaluation of project plans in construction is seen to be an important task which will become more so as project complexity increases and computers become used more and more, initially as aids to planners and ultimately as automatic generators of plans. This paper discusses automated plan evaluation, and in particular the evaluation of some financial aspects of a project contained in different models of a project: the Bill of Quantities and a work activity plan. It introduces a technique for comparing these models and then for automating the budgeting of construction. Discussion of some results and problems in the work so far follows.
