    An Introduction to Model-Based Conceptual Estimating for Better Bidding and Project Control

    Decisions made during the conceptual design process have a major impact on the final project, so it is important to make the right decisions based on rigorous cost estimates instead of guesswork. However, because little of the engineering work has been completed at the earliest phases, it is challenging for estimators to achieve the levels of confidence that senior management demands. View this short presentation to learn how model-based conceptual estimating can effectively meet this challenge.
