|Abstract: ||The article aims to identify the scientific challenges and point out future research directions on Cost Engineering.
The research areas covered in this article include Design Cost; Manufacturing Cost; Operating Cost; Life Cycle Cost;
Risk and Uncertainty management and Affordability Engineering. Collected information at the Academic Forum
on Cost Engineering held at Cranfield University in 2008 and further literature review findings are presented. The
forum set the scope of the Cost Engineering research, a brainstorming was held on the forum and literatures were
further reviewed to understand the current and future practices in cost engineering. The main benefits of the article
include coverage of the current research on cost engineering from different perspectives and the future research areas
on Cost Engineering.|
