GRI Manufactured Gas Plant Probabilistic Cost Model, Version 1.0, User's Manual

To perform the calculationintensive analyses associated with these methodologies, a Windows-based software tool called the GRI MGP Probabilistic Cost Model (GRI-MGPCost™) was developed. The model was developed into a 32-bit Windows 95INT executable program using FORTRAN for the computational engine and C" for the user-friendly graphical interface. This topical report functions as a user's manual for the cost model.

Summary:
Utilities that have owned or currently own manufactured gas plant (MGP) sites are often faced with the need to estimate the potential costs associated with their environmental management. The estimation of environmental management costs can be a complex, timeconsuming process filled with substantial uncertainties about details of the sequence of actions for environmental management of a site and the cost of conducting each action. Due to these uncertainties, it can be useful to use a probabilistic framework to analyze the potential costs associated with the environmental management of MGP sites. The cost estimating framework developed by GRI and documented in this report is based on the integration of two probabilistic methodologies, Decision Tree analysis and Monte Carlo analysis. To perform the calculationintensive analyses associated with these methodologies, a Windows-based software tool called the GRI MGP Probabilistic Cost Model (GRI-MGPCost™) was developed. The model was developed into a 32-bit Windows 95INT executable program using FORTRAN for the computational engine and C" for the user-friendly graphical interface. This topical report functions as a user's manual for the cost model. GRI-MGPCost™, Version 1.0, provides a tool for estimating costs for the environmental management of MGP sites in a way that quantifies the uncertainty inherent in both the sequence of management actions and in their costs. The GRI MGP Probabilistic Cost Model generates cost probability distributions for the management of an MGP site when provided with the likelihood of various possible sequences of management actions.

Compatibility:
GRI-MGPCost™, Version 1.0 contains a Excel spreadsheet that functions under any version of Microsoft Excel that can read 97-2003 ".XLS" files.
