The Conceptual Cost Estimator™ is an estimating system for process plant construction projects such as refineries and various types of chemical plants with an accuracy range of minus or plus ten percent. It is based upon John Page's Conceptual Cost Estimating Manual, a standard reference for estimators worldwide.
Houston, TX (PRWEB) January 17, 2005 -- InterPlan Systems Inc. has developed
a new conceptual cost estimating software based upon John Page's Conceptual Cost
Estimating Manual, a standard reference for estimators
Conceptual estimating is a special technique based on the study of historical project cost factors and has proven to be an effective method for obtaining rapid estimates for project feasibility studies and budgeting. John Page was one of the leading estimators in the United States process plant construction projects such as refineries and various types of chemical plants and published estimating formulas and tables based upon his extensive database in his Conceptual Cost Estimating Manual.
InterPlan Systems' Conceptual Cost Estimator™ has computerized the estimating formulas in John Page's book to provide an easier, quicker and more reliable method for estimators to produce quality estimates. John Page has personally verified the accuracy of the calculations in the Conceptual Cost Estimator™.
