Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This revision of the author's bestselling earlier work on cost estimating has been updated to provide currently applicable examples, data and techniques. Two new chapters have been added covering: computer tools and models for cost estimating, where to get these tools, and the features to look for; software cost estimating with special emphasis on the effect of CASE tools on software productivities and resulting software costs. A complete set of inflation tables is now included to permit conversion from any year dollars to any other year dollars from 1959 through 1997. Retains its comprehensive coverage of the elements needed to embark on a cost estimating task. Strengthened are the invaluable parts of the book which tell the estimator how to produce a competitive and credible cost estimate. Manufacturing standards for hardware and electronics are retained as are handy tables for determining the costs of engineering, design, documentation, drafting and testing.

Book News Annotation:

Offers a systematic approach to cost estimating that can be used in a wide range of applications in manufacturing, aerospace, construction, business, and financial services. The new edition includes treatment of computer-aided cost estimating and cost-analysis tools, discussion of software cost estimating, and questions and answers that enhance its value as preparatory material for professional certification.
