Before a project starts, estimation engineers analyze all preliminary research data to determine the project’s influence on the company and its investments.
Estimation engineers typically compile this information and present it to stakeholders in an easy-to-understand format.
As project deliverables are developed, estimation engineers review them to start gaining an understanding of the overall scope of the project.
This involves reviewing design packages, project drawings, and other deliverables to prepare for the estimation process.
Estimation engineers use the preliminary research data and review of project deliverables to prepare the cost estimates for the entire project.
As they start to gain a clearer sense of the overall project, they put together cost estimations and deliver them to stakeholders and project managers.
