Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Today, practicing engineers need to understand the economic, environmental and social contexts of a development project and be able to resolve problems that arise in these areas. Accredited professional engineering courses (including SARTOR approved courses) now require students to develop an awareness of the economic, financial, social and environmental factors of a development project, along with an understanding of risk analysis and quality systems. Therefore, to be successful, engineering projects must be properly planned and those plans assessed and evaluated on their merits.

This book provides details on the evaluation techniques required to assess project plans, and information on both economic and non-economic methods of project appraisal. Working examples and case studies are given to illustrate the applicability of each set of techniques. Engineering Project Appraisal will prove an invaluable and informative guide for both students and practitioners involved in the area of engineering project planning.
