SUMMARY
Cost 
engineering 
as 
a 
discipline 
covers 
the 
areas 
of 
cost 
estimation, 
cost 
control, 
and 
profitability. 
In 
this 
text, 
we 
will 
be 
concentrating 
on 
cost 
estimating 
and 
cost 
control.
CEs 
should 
be 
involved 
in 
all 
phases 
of 
a 
project 
life 
cycle, 
from 
initial 
planning 
and 
evaluation 
to 
the 
start-up 
of 
the 
plant 
after 
construc-
tion.
An 
estimate 
is 
a 
prediction 
of 
the 
manner 
in 
which 
a 
project 
will 
be 
executed.
The 
single 
largest 
potential 
for 
variation 
in 
an 
early 
estimate 
is 
the 
design 
and 
execution 
basis. 
Finalizing 
the 
design 
and 
execution 
basis, 
con-
sequently, 
has 
a 
dramatic 
effect 
on 
estimate 
accuracy.
There 
are 
owner 
or 
client 
CEs, 
and 
there 
are 
contractor 
CEs, 
with 
some-
what 
different 
roles 
to 
play 
but 
the 
same 
end 
purpose: 
completing 
a 
project 
for 
the 
lowest 
possible 
cost 
consistent 
with 
the 
overall 
pro-
ject 
objectives.
A 
major 
responsibility 
or 
the 
CE 
is 
to 
ensure 
that 
the 
requirements 
of 
the 
three 
D‚Äôs‚ÄĒDefinition,¬†
Documentation, 
and 
Discipline‚ÄĒare¬†
being 
met.
