This study relates to the development of a program for calculating the design data and estimating on the Abbe-$K{\ddot{o}}nig$ prism. First, we set the Abbe-$K{\ddot{o}}nig$ prism design variables and derive the relational expressions between them. With this expressions, we could develope the program that outputs the numerical data for the Abbe-$K{\ddot{o}}nig$ prism design and three evaluation data for the Abbe-$K{\ddot{o}}nig$ prism analysis when the face-length, the effective convergent incident angle of incident beam, and the refraction index of prism are given. In fact, applying this program to the prism which is not the commercial size, we were able to calculate the design data very quickly, and we could easily understand the optical structure of the designed Abbe-$K{\ddot{o}}nig$ prism by the three evaluation data. This means that we can quickly ensure the structural data of the Abbe-$K{\ddot{o}}nig$ prism which is required for the product development.
