Integrated Total Cost Management for EPCC Projects

Dear Professional Engineers,

Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Commissioning (EPCC) Projects are complex projects that require integrated total cost management for effective and efficient project delivery. Total cost management (TCM) is the effective application of professional and technical expertise to plan and control resources, costs, profitability and risk. TCM is a systematic approach throughout the life cycle of any enterprise, project, program, portfolio, facility, product or service. This training is for professionals working in EPCC projects and it is going to be a hand-on experience for practical learning.
