    (VF)Le présent article montre que la principale source d’erreur dans la méthode UVA est l’erreur d’agré-gation, puis il approfondit les conditions qui évitent que celle-ci ne soit trop importante. L’analyse conclut que si les gammes opératoires sont tenues à peu près à jour par les logiciels adéquats et s’il existe un suivi de l’évolution du prix des ressources, la méthode UVA est un outil commode pour calculer des coûts.(VA)This article shows that the principal source of error in the AVU method is the error of aggregation. It then looks further into the conditions which prevent this error from becoming too significant. The analysis concludes that if the operational ranges are held about up to date by the adequate software and if there is a follow-up of the variation of resources prices, the AVU method is a convenient tool to calculate costs.
