Estimating of Engineering Course
The Estimating of Engineering course of the Cost Engineering Academy focuses on estimating the cost of the actual engineering work. Engineering not only defines the cost of your project by the design that is made, but the engineering process in itself is part of your project cost as well. This course focuses on estimating those engineering cost. It will help you keep the cost down for your engineering phases, but as a result you can also prevent budget overruns.
During the Estimating of Engineering course you will start by gaining a deeper understanding about the position of engineering within a project. You will also look into the buildup of the costs of engineering for each discipline. Attention will then turn to the development of the engineering resources required within the various project phases. A clear understanding of these steps allows you to move on to study the different methods that are available to estimate the engineering work. These methods will not only be studied in depth, but you will also be challenged to use these methods on the cases that will be presented during the course.
After this course you will know how to identify major cost risks of engineering. Together with the estimating methods this means you will be able to estimate the engineering involved in your projects. This course is also useful if you want to improve on your present estimating skills or if you want to validate the engineering estimates of others.
What you will learn:
Estimating of engineering
Engineering effort in engineering phases
Methods of estimating engineering
Estimating techniques and methods will be practiced through multiple cases. Each case will focus on applying the different methods for each phase.
You will have to have a basic understanding of cost engineering and estimating. In addition, you will need to have a basic understanding of technical projects. For this reason, it is advised to have attended the introduction course cost engineering and the estimating course by the Cost Engineering Academy.
Course price is € 595,- per attendee per day.
