The 2nd Space Cost Engineering Conference in-person is postponed in 2022 (Place ESTEC, The Netherlands TBC & Date TBD).
A virtual alternative workshop is organised the 16th pm and 17th am of September 2021.
A link to this virtual event will be send to all registered participants one week before the event.
Virtual Workshop : 16th and 17th of September 2021
The Cost Engineering profession
in the space domain is constantly evolving, needing to keep up with new tools and methods as well as the rapidly evolving space market, space systems and services that are the subject of our cost estimates.
This conference is to facilitate the exchange of best practices, methods, trends and lessons learned
within the cost engineering community, giving opportunity to participants to demonstrate and share their work through papers and presentations on:
- Cost analysis and modelling
- Affordability analysis
- Earned Value Management
- Technical and Cost Data Acquisition and Storing
- Cost evolution trends
- Impact of and lessons learned from New Space approaches
- Cost reduction vs risk taking
- Cost engineering in feasibility studies, concept studies and running projects
- … and related subjects.
The conference will furthermore host a round table on cost engineering hosted by the COMET group. The term COMET refers to ‘Communities of Experts’, which are open innovation networks managed by ESA and CNES.
