CESK Engineering

Used for estimating basic and detail engineering work.

As a part of project development, engineering is a significant piece of the overall work. It is therefore just as important to prepare a good cost estimate of the engineering work as for the project’s construction phase.

The CESK Engineering knowledgebase is a unique dataset specifically developed to support the estimation of your engineering work. Built on decades of engineering expertise, the CESK Engineering dataset contains all the information needed for typical engineering activities and deliverables.

Using a clear distinction between basic and detail engineering phases, you can easily find the required elements depending on the engineering design phase. Furthermore, all components are conveniently categorized according to their associated disciplines, such as process, mechanical and electrical.

The CESK Engineering dataset is mainly deliverable based, allowing estimators to prepare an estimate simply by specifying the number of required deliverables, such as Process Flow Diagrams (PFDs), Piping & Instrumentation Diagrams (P&IDs), but also HAZOP studies and review meetings. Each deliverable included in the CESK Engineering dataset contains the time typically required to produce these deliverables, based on the selected configuration, such as the number of equipment items per drawing.

The cost information for each deliverable is based on the required time for the involved resources to produce a given deliverable. Together with a complete set of (adjustable) labor rates for different types of functions (e.g. process engineer, draftsman) the CESK Engineering dataset allows for a reliable and accurate estimate of your engineering work.

CESK Engineering integrates effortlessly with Cleopatra Enterprise, the project cost management software.
