Cost engineering is a discipline within the field of engineering and project management that involves the application of scientific principles and techniques to estimate, plan, and control the costs of a project or product throughout its entire lifecycle.
The main objective of cost engineering is to ensure that a project or product is completed within the allocated budget, while meeting the required quality, scope, and schedule. It involves the analysis and management of all costs associated with a project, including labor, materials, equipment, overheads, and contingency.
Cost engineers are responsible for developing cost estimates and budgets, monitoring and controlling costs, identifying cost-saving opportunities, and providing cost-related advice to stakeholders. They also work closely with other project team members, such as architects, engineers, and contractors, to ensure that the project is delivered on time and within budget.
Cost engineering is an essential function in industries such as construction, manufacturing, and engineering, where the ability to control costs is critical to the success of a project or product.
