2017 will be a big year for our team.
We’ve been working hard for quite some time on a new benchmarking solution. While we’re still in the sausage-making process, the light at the end of the tunnel is looking bright and I can’t wait to show you what we’ve come up with.

This year’s conference was held at the Sheraton Centre Hotel in Toronto, Canada. Once again, the AACEI staff put on a great conference in a great venue in a great city. For those that haven’t spent time in Toronto (especially in the summer), I highly recommend you find some time to enjoy the city.

The need for accurate preliminary estimates is never more apparent than in the electric power industry. Projects such as new substations are constantly being considered for capital expense and budgeting. Studies that include cost impact analysis are also important to continually improve the performance and reliability of the electrical grid.
Aerospace contractors, private spaceflight companies, and NASA all maintain libraries of history and benchmarks for their spacecraft and equipment. They use this data to justify and validate current project costs or compare past projects (or elements within projects). However, with the exponential technology advancement curve they undoubtedly operate under, I can imagine how hard it is to keep this data current, much less collect and calibrate the volume of data necessary to achieve a meaningful analysis.
Without a doubt, this is true for engineering, architectural, and contracting firms building Spaceship Apple, the technology giant’s new corporate headquarters targeted for completion at the end 2016.
