Making next generation Cost Engineering real

Given the growing competitive pressures, Cost Engineering (CE) has been ramped up across many sectors to create better cost transparency. Furthermore, CE also helps structure a firm’s approach to identifying and delivering additional savings potential with the shortest timeframe possible.

Established Cost Engineering is no longer fit for purpose

While the strategic value of the CE function remains unquestioned, many established operating models are no longer fit for purpose. The reason is straightforward: as the business changes, CE needs to change too, e.g., to support a faster time-to-market approach, comply with greater agility in development, cover technological change, and facilitate faster cost estimates.
