Course Description

COURSE:  WENG 200 Scoping and Estimating

OBJECTIVE:  For each student to comprehend and consistently apply scoping and cost estimating principles, tools and standards to more effectively plan Air Force infrastructure requirements.

DESCRIPTION:  This course is offered over a one-week period (half days, either 1200-1700 Eastern Time in Fiscal Quarters 2 and 3, or 0900-1300 Eastern Time in Fiscal Quarters 1 and 4) and focuses on the Operations Engineering process of assembling requirements and initial costs from both customer service request submissions (e.g. the AF Form 332) and from the condition assessments (e.g. BUILDER) with a key focus on the initial cost estimates produced. The course will empower technical experts from within a specific discipline to collaborate across multiple disciplines and develop a reliable initial scope and estimate for infrastructure work. Note: While estimating will focus on scoping issues, especially on multidiscipline investigations, the assembling of an initial estimate will require mathematical applications.
