This book provides an introductory treatment of the design methodology for undergraduate students in multiple disciplines. It introduces the principles of design, and discusses design tools and techniques from traditional and multidisciplinary perspectives and comprehensively explores the design engineering process. Innovation, creativity, design thinking, collaboration, communication, problem solving, and technical skills are increasingly being identified as key skills for practicing engineers in tackling today's complex design problems. Design Engineering Journey addresses the need for a design textbook that teaches these skills. It presents a broad multidisciplinary perspective to design that encourages students to be innovative and open to new ideas and concepts while also drawing on traditional design methods and strategies. For example, students are provided with design solutions inspired by nature as well as the arts to nurture their creative problem solving skills. This book provides an overview from establishing need to ideation of concepts and realization techniques and prototyping, presented in an engaging and visually appealing manner, incorporating multidisciplinary examples that aim to reinforce the student's evolving design knowledge. The technical level of this book is kept at an introductory level so that freshman and sophomore students should be able to understand and solve a variety of design problems and come up with innovative concepts, and realize them through prototype and testing. This book also can serve as a reference text for senior capstone design projects, and the readers will find that the examples and scenarios presented are representative of problems faced by professional designers in engineering.

Cost Engineers: Who are they and what do they do? So just what is cost engineering and who are the people we call cost engineers? The first place to seek an answer is the AACE International Constitution and Bylaws, which states the following: Section 2. The Association is dedicated to the tenets of furthering the concepts of Total Cost Management and Cost Engineering. Total Cost Management is the effective application of professional and technical expertise to plan and control resources, costs, profitability and risk. Simply stated, it is a systematic approach to managing cost throughout the life cycle of any enterprise, program, facility, project, product or service. This is accomplished through the application of cost engineering and cost management principles, proven methodologies and the latest technology in support of the management process. Section 3. Total Cost Management is that area of engineering practice where engineering judgment and experience are utilized in the application of scientific principles and techniques to problems of business and program planning; cost estimating; economic and financial analysis; cost engineering; program and project management; planning and scheduling; and cost and schedule performance measurement and change control. What this says is that the list of practice areas in Section 3 are collectively called cost engineering; while the “process” through which these practices are applied is called total cost management or TCM. Let’s elaborate a bit more. TCM and its subprocesses (strategic asset management and project control) are defined in the “integration” chapter that follows this preface. However, we can summarize that chapter by saying that TCM is a management process focused on coming up with ideas for creating things (i.e., a strategic assets), analyzing and deciding upon the best idea, and finally planning and creating the selected thing (i.e., by doing projects) in a controlled way (i.e., project control). So, that’s the process; but who performs the process? Many people would say that “engineers” and engineering are most often responsible for creating functional things (or strategic assets as we call them). They are correct. However, there are multiple elements to engineering. Most look at engineering and see the element of physical “design” and the calculation and analysis tasks that are done to support that physical design (e.g., design a bridge). Again they are correct. However, many people don’t see that beyond the physical dimension of the design (e.g., the bridge structure), there are less tangible dimensions of money, time, and other resources that are invested in the creation of the asset. We refer to these investments collectively as “costs”. Someone needs to estimate what the bridge might cost, determine the activities needed to design and build it, estimate how long these activities will take, and so on. Furthermore, someone needs to continually monitor and assess the progress of the bridge design and construction (in relation to the expenditure of money and time) to ensure that the completed bridge meets the owner’s objectives. This is a lot of work. It requires special skills and knowledge. The cost dimension requires calculation, analysis, planning, and control. No bridge has ever been built without dealing with both the physical and cost dimensions. However, the engineering skills and knowledge required to deal with “costs” are quite different from those required to deal with the physical design dimension. From that difference, the field of cost engineering was born. So, cost engineers work alongside of and are peers with engineers (or software analysts, play producers, architects, and other creative fields) to handle the cost dimension. And, returning to the Constitution and Bylaws definition, the skills and knowledge needed by that dimension are “business and program planning; cost estimating; economic and financial analysis; cost engineering; program and project management; planning and scheduling; and cost and schedule performance measurement and change control.” All these functions are performed in an integrated way through the process of TCM. Cost engineers often specialize in one function with a focus on one side of the asset and project business. They may have titles such as cost estimator, parametric analyst, strategic planner, scheduler, cost/schedule engineer, project manager, or project control lead. They may work for the business that owns and operates the asset (emphasis on economics and analysis), or they may 6 work for the contractor that executes the projects (emphasis on planning and control). But, no matter what their job title or business environment, a general knowledge of, and skills in, all areas of cost engineering are required to perform their job effectively. The History of this Publication This AACE International publication had its beginnings in 1985, when the Education Board started work on the AACE Recommended Practice: Required Skills & Knowledge of a Cost Engineer. Board members included Brian D. Dunfield (Chair), Dr. Brisbane H. Brown Jr., Frank J. Kelly Jr., CCE, James M. Neil, PE CCE, and Gord Zwaigenbaum, CCE. The AACE staff administrator supporting the Education Board was Barry G. McMillan, our current AACE International executive director. The document Required Skills & Knowledge of a Cost Engineer was published in August 1986 in Cost Engineering magazine. Then in 1987, a 13-session workshop was organized and presented at the AACE Annual Meeting in Atlanta. The presenters prepared instructional materials for the workshop, and Dr. James M. Neil, PE CCE, served as editor for a new AACE publication containing all of the instructional materials. The publication, Special Supplement-1987 Transactions, was the 1st edition of this publication. Similar sessions have been presented at AACE annual meetings every year since that first effort in 1987. The following year (1987), the 2nd edition was published with its present title, Skills & Knowledge of Cost Engineering. Dr. James M. Neil, PE CCE, again served as editor. The content was increased to 17 chapters, and a consistent style was adopted. Five years later (1992), the 3rd edition was published with Donald F. McDonald Jr., PE CCE, and Dr. James M. Neil, PE CCE, serving as co-editors. A large number of AACE International members became involved in the updating and revising of the published materials. The 18 chapters in this edition were presented as the basis of a system for teaching the basic skills and knowledge any cost engineer should possess. The 4th edition—published in 1999 with Dr. Richard E. Larew, PE, CCE serving as editor—added new chapters, problems, and solutions, while grouping closely-related chapters into eight parts. The AACE International Canon of Ethics was also included as an appendix. This Edition The 5th edition, with 31 Chapters organized into seven sections, is the first step in aligning the content of educational materials within the Association to improve their value in the certification preparation process. Special attention is given to the need to have a good match between materials in this Skills & Knowledge of Cost Engineering and the AACE International Certification Study Guide. New chapters include: As in past editions, all new materials have been subjected to independent reviews by professional cost engineers and other subject area experts. Introduction – Integration of Skills and Knowledge of Cost Engineering Chapter 1 – Cost Elements Chapter 2 - Pricing Chapter 3 - Materials Chapter 4 - Labor Chapter 5 – Engineering Chapter 6 – Equipment, Parts, Tools Chapter 7 – Economic Costs Chapter 8 – Activity Based Cost Management Chapter 9 – Estimating Chapter 21 – Project Labor Cost Control Chapter 22 – Managing Project People Chapter 23 – Quality Management Chapter 24 – Value Analysis Chapter 25 – Contracts Chapter 26 – Strategic Asset Management Chapter 29 – Statistics and Probability Chapter 31 - Risk 7 The Next Edition The Education Board will begin to review this 5th edition a short time after it has been published. It will begin to ask: What technical corrections are needed? Which chapters need to be updated or rewritten? Which chapters need to be converted to SI units? How can chapters best be grouped? Are there chapters that should be eliminated or combined with others? Should more multiproject and enterprise level chapters be included? In addition, the Education Board will be considering needed changes in other AACE International publications. You, the reader and user of this publication, can be of great help to the Education Board and AACE International. You can make note of changes you believe should be made in the next edition. You can offer to help write or edit the next edition. Please take the time to send your suggestions to the Education Board chair. If your present objective is to become certified as a CCE or CCC, we hope this publication will be helpful to you. A final reminder: net income from this publication goes into the fund for competitive scholarships offered by AACE International. A special thanks to John Hollman and Dr. Richard E. Larew who contributed significantly to this preface. Dr. Scott J. Amos, PE Springfield, MO January 2004

The fifth edition of Plant Design and Economics for Chemical Engineers is a major revision of the popular fourth edition. There are new chapters on process synthesis, computer-aided design, and design of chemical reactors. A traditionally strong feature of the text, economic analysis, has been revamped and updated. Another strength, equipment sizing and cost estimation, is updated and expanded as well. These improvements also reflect changes in equipment availability. The numerous real examples throughout the book include computer or hand solutions, and often both. There is a new increased emphasis on computer use in design, economic evaluation, and optimization. Concepts, strategies, and approaches to computer use are featured. These concepts are not tied to particular software programs and therefore apply to wide a range of applications software, of both current and future release. This widely used text is now more useful than ever, providing a "one-stop" guide to chemical process design and evaluation.
