Virtual Cost Engineering Studio (V-CES): a framework for Cost Engineering services

Roy, R. ORCID: 0000-0001-5491-7437 (2005). Virtual Cost Engineering Studio (V-CES): a framework for Cost Engineering services. In: 2005 IEEE International Technology Management Conference (ICE). 2005 IEEE International Technology Management Conference (ICE), 20-22 Jun 2005, Munich, Germany.


Cost has become a business driver. V-CES is a European Project aiming to develop and deploy a set of services to the Cost Engineering Community: Training, a Cost Engineering Virtual Community, a Cost Estimating Tool, and a Cost Engineering Database. The access to such services will be done via Internet and a Web browser. This implies the possibility for the cost professionals of exercising a just-in time training, estimating and consulting related to their work. The use of these services implies interactions of the kind client-server and peer-to-peer, and their implementation demands the use of different software technologies, being the main ones: Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), database, multi-agent toolkit, and reasoning engine. This paper presents the technological definition of the framework to be used for the over all development and implementation.
