"Means CostWorks" from R.S. Means Co., Inc. (Kingston, MA) provides access to cost data from a CD-ROM for the construction and design industries. For the most part, tabs and buttons in the top toolbar permit quick navigation through the data and allow the user to select cost data, says the company. Any cost items that are accessed can be placed on "CostLists" that users can create. Users also can export listed cost items to Windows(r) applications used for calculation and preparation of estimates.
