Industrial Process Plant Construction Estimating and Man-Hour Analysis focuses on industrial process plants and enables the estimator to apply statistical applications, estimate data tables, and estimate sheets to use methods for collecting, organizing, summarizing, presenting and analyzing historical man-hour data. The book begins with an introduction devoted to labor, productivity measurement, collection of historical data, verification of data, estimating methods, and factors affecting construction labor productivity and impacts of data. It goes on to explore construction statistics and mathematical spreadsheets that are followed by detailed scopes of work, ranging from coal-fired power plants, to oil refineries and solar plants, among others.

This book will aid industrial project managers, estimators and engineers with the level of detail and practical utility for today’s industrial operations. It is an ideal resource for those involved in engineering, technology and construction estimation.

Key Features

  • Teachers users how to use day-to day worksheets to estimate equipment and piping for all process plants and power plant projects
