Cost Engineering

Cost engineers make informed decisions about the budget and schedule of your projects. For example, they identify high purchase prices and avoid poorly developed products in terms of cost. Due to the high efficiency of cost engineering, companies in almost all industries are desperately looking for cost engineers - but competent personnel is scarce.

Optimize your business with targeted training

360° Cost Engineer

In cooperation with the renowned Cost Engineering Academy, costdata® presents a unique global training for cost engineers. In four hands-on modules, Stefan Weinert and Steffen Goebel teach you how to stay one step ahead by using data, facts and innovative systems to analyze and implement existing optimization potential.

Module 1: Basic Cost Engineer

In this entry-level module, you lay the foundation for a uniform and company-wide understanding of cost engineering. It forms the foundation and is ideal for use in development, purchasing, project management, controlling and sales.

Module 2: Advanced Cost Engineer

The advanced cost engineer plans and carries out cost engineering projects independently. In projects, he sets target costs and achieves them using methods such as design-to-cost.

In cost workshops with customers, suppliers and his own organization, he develops optimization potentials. He is able to negotiate potentials independently and to support the responsible departments in negotiations.

Module 3: Cost Engineering Professional

The cost engineering expert is qualified to successfully implement cost engineering in his own company as well as to build, lead and train cost engineering teams.

With the help of key figures and innovation management, cost savings can be strategically planned and implemented. In cooperation with the development department and purchasing, he sets decisive impulses for future cost-optimized products.

Module 4: Production engineering

This module teaches you the basics of calculating relevant manufacturing processes for your work. This will enable you to determine the machining time of the process and the appropriate machining machine, among other things.
