Making the specifics of a complex concern accessible and its handling quite manageable, this fourth edition of the Project and Cost Engineers' Handbook examines the variables associated with international projects and project risk analysis. It provides instruction on contingency planning, delves into ethical considerations, considers the impact of the Internet on project and cost engineering, and examines the field’s ever increasing reliance on software. It also offers a detailed checklist of actions that must be taken to assure the successful completion of an international project, and presents updated information on AACE International certification programs.
