Here is a book which shows the reader how to accurately estimate, in advance, the cost of producing products or services by means of the design-to-cost method, which systematically constrains design goals according to available funds. The author demonstrates how to use value engineering, cost estimating, and cost control to devise, and adhere to, realistic cost goals. He also touches on techniques from management methods to specific engineering approaches, and provides actual case studies of projects and services that have now become affordable through the application of the design-to-cost method. The text has been aimed at designers, architects, defence contractors, builders, industrial and commercial managers and business owners.
