Bosonics cost modeling software, CostPro, determines manufacturing cost of an item based on design and production information. CostPro requires its user to provide pricing data to arrive at the total cost estimate. The goal of the project was to enhance CostPro by providing more convenient methods of providing this pricing data, relieving the user of the burden of providing hardware pricing information.

The project consisted of two main parts: an XML mapping facility and a product search interface. The XML mapping facility allows a user to map fields in XML files to fields in a pricing database, automatically uploading that data to the database. The product search interface is integrated into CostPro at the point where CostPro asks the user for pricing information. The user can then use the search interface to find the appropriate products in the pricing database and return their prices to CostPro for incorporation into the cost model. The system was implemented in Java.
